Special Attributes

William Hunt Camellia Sasanqua features brilliant, deep orchid-pink loose peony-form flowers in early to mid-fall. Bright yellow center stamens are an extra-added bonus. This smaller camellia sasanqua with a rounded form of dark green foliage provides the perfect backdrop for the stunning flowers. The foliage and flowers are excellent for cutting and displaying in your favorite vase, or use one flower to float in a bowl of water.   



Landscape & Garden Uses

A smaller growing Camellia sasanqua with an upright habit of growth to about 4 to 5 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide, William Lanier Hunt is best grown as a shrub. As a shrub, it 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.) It can be "limbed up" to form a very small tree where it will serve well as an attractive and colorful specimen in landscape islands, containers, 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:  3.5' 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.
