Cotton Candy Camellia
Camellia sasanqua 'Cotton Candy'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-10b  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

Often the first of the fall blooming Sasanquas to flower, Cotton Candy Camellia produces a mesmerizing abundance of fully double, fluffy flowers with cotton candy pink petals. A standout in the garden! This highly desirable ornamental bush has a sturdy, upright growth habit with small dark green leaves that make it useful as a hedge or a small evergreen tree form specimen.




Landscape & Garden Uses

A Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 5-8 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide (depending on pruning), Cotton Candy can be grown as a shrub or small tree. As a shrub it is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, or as a hedge or background plant in landscape borders and is especially nice as espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall) in home foundation plants. As this camellia grows, lower branches can be removed to form a small evergreen tree that serves well as an attractive and colorful focal point specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to camellia gardens, pink theme 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 garden above USDA Zone 7a, where this camellia variety is not reliably winter hardy. Find Your Zone

Spacing:  4 to 5 feet apart for solid hedge; 10 feet 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, Camellia grows and blooms 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.
