Special Attributes
Shishi Gashira is without a doubt one of the finest Camellia sasanqua on the market. It produces an amazing amount of gorgeous, bright rose-pink double flowers on compact plants growing to only 3 to 4 feet tall with a slightly wider spread to maybe 5 feet.  It's compact size makes it an excellent choice for smaller garden spaces.



Landscape & Garden Uses

As a shrub Shishi Gashira Camellia is ideal for use as a hedge or background plant, in groupings, and is especially nice as espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall.) When "limbed up" to form a small tree it serves well as an attractive and colorful specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. Great for cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors overwinter for those who live above USDA Zone 7a, where not winter hardy. Find Your Zone >

Spacing:  3-4' for solid hedge; 7'+ 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.
