Camellia sasanqua 'Avalanche'

A slender upright habit with formal double white flowers against dark green foliage.

CULTURAL

Sasanquas love to grow in a warm full sun to partly shaded position. Prune after flowering and in Summer to maintain a compact shape. Once established sasanquas will grow in most soil types, however, they prefer a well drained slightly acidic soil. Once established they are quite drought tolerant. Fertilise in late Spring and Summer with a specific Camellia fertiliser or a complete organic fertiliser.

LANDSCAPE USE

The ideal thin-growing hedge for alongside walkways or where space is limited. Looks beautiful when planted in containers for clipping into upright cones.

DIMENSIONS

Height 3m; width 0.6-1m
