Sasanqua camellias are a drought tolerant fall blooming shrub that work well as an accent plant, hedge, or tall foundation planting.  Pruned up it makes for a good "small tree" form.  There are numerous cultivars available, including dwarf forms.  Does well in containers which can be overwintered indoors in greenhouses or cool but bright sunrooms to protect from frost. This plant is slightly salt tolerant. It blooms in late fall; large flowers are usually singles, but there are double forms; flowers are smaller and more open than C. japonica.
