Hardy Camellia

Camellia sasanqua

camillia sasanquas 'long island pink'This woody evergreen is a show stopper – come check them out!  They are slow growing, but eventually get 6 to 10 feet high and 8 ft wide.  Dense branches explode with beautiful dark green polished foliage.  This single pink flower opens around September and blooms till December in full shade or partial sun.



It is an attractive landscape plant and another interesting possibility for a hedge having a pyramidal to oval form.  It is supposedly a deer-resistant plant, but we all know Nantucket deer seem to be happy making a meal from just about any plant.

We have the ‘Long Island Pink’ variety currently in stock.  It could be a lovely alternative to the everyday privet privacy screen, or an attractive feature next to your front door.  Try it out, we expect you will enjoy the results!
