Camellia sasanqua Soft Pink 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. 'Showa-No-Sakae' is a low growing shrub with arching branches, soft pink, semi-double to double flowers, and shiny dark green foliage. More open and faster growing than 'Shishi-Gashira'.
