Camellia sasanqua Bright Rose Semi-double Blooms
C. sasanqua generally has smaller leaves and flowers than C. japonica and blooms earlier. C. sasanqua is rather versatile in the landscape and can be used as accent, in containers, espaliers, ground covers, or informal hedges. 'Shishi-Gashira' is a low growing shrub with arching branches, bright rose, semi-double to rose-form double flowers, and shiny dark green foliage. More compact than 'Showa-No-Sakae'.
