Camellia sasanqua Brilliant Pink Double Blooms


C. sasanqua blooms earlier, and it has smaller leaves and flowers than C. japonica, creating an overall effect that is more graceful than its larger-leaved cousin. 'Chansonette' is an especially vigorous selection with a spreading habit and brilliant pink, formal double flowers. Use this versatile shrub for containers or as an accent. It can also make an excellent informal hedge, and its long, flexible branches are easily trained on a trellis.
