Re-stock: in 4-6 weeks

Classic Japanese paperwhite camellia with large wavy-petal flowers each with a golden centre. Pollinating insects love these open-style flowers, great for hedging around fruit and vegetable plots.

Much better in warmer climates than japonica camellias, the sasanquas are delicately scented, evergreen, and make excellent screens and hedges.

APPEARANCE : Evergreen shrubs or small trees to 3m with displays of flowers in autumn and early winter. Setsugekka is an old favourite from Japan producing masses of large white single flowers with wavy petals. Sasanqua Camellias have smaller leaves and more dense foliage than the Japonica varieties. They are more sun tolerant, better in warmer climates, and earlier flowering.
USE FOR : Setsugekka is one of the best for screens, hedges, espaliers. Also happy in large pots.
CLIMATE : Will come through a light frost once established. Shelter from strong winds and exposed sites.
PLANTING : Sunny or partly shaded position with morning or afternoon sun.   Plant in a free draining neutral or acid pH soil rich in organic matter.  A potting mix rich with humus is ideal added at the time of planting.
CARE : Mulch and water well, prune after flowering and fertilise in Spring.
YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
