Autumn Sunrise Camellia
Camellia sasanqua 'Autumn Sunrise'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-9b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Camellia variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.

Special Attributes

A super-heavy bloomer and one of if not the first Camellias to start blooming in fall, the Autumn Sunrise Camellia produces a plethora of fragrant, very pretty and unique bowl-shape flowers with red-backed white petals tipped in red. A vigorous evergreen with dark green foliage that serves as a splendid background to the flowers. Truly spectacular!

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to about 8 to 10 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide (depending on pruning), Autumn Sunrise Camellia can be grown as a shrub or small tree. As a shrub this camellia is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, or as hedge or background plant in landscape borders and is especially nice as a corner plant or espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall) in home foundation plantings. As she grows taller lower branches can be removed to form a highly attractive and color small evergreen tree that serves well as an accent or focal point specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to camellia gardens, Asian gardens, cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors during winter by those who live and garden above USDA Zone 7a, where this camellia variety is not reliably winter hardy. Find Your Zone

Spacing:  5 feet apart for solid hedge; 12 feet or more apart for space between plants

Cultural Preferences

Camellia adapt well to various soil types however prefer a moist but well-drained acidic soil that is rich in organic matter. Constantly soggy soil is a slow killer. In general, Camellias grow and bloom better in partial shade with some shelter from the hot afternoon sun. Morning sun with afternoon shade or filtered sunlight is perfect. All-day filtered sun is fine.
