Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CAMELLIA hiemalis 'Showa-no-sakae'
Showa-no-sakae Camellia, Snow Camellia
The 'Showa-No-Sakae' cultivar of snow camellia is a vigorous low-spreading evergreen shrub native to eastern and southern Asia. Its soft pink, semi-double to double (extra petaled) flowers begin to appear in fall and reach peak in midwinter. Petals may be bright pink, fuchsia or rarely light pink in their coloration.
Plant 'Showa-No-Sakae' in moist, acidic, humus-rich soil. It does best in bright partial shade, but will tolerate nearly full sun if ideal soil conditions are maintained. Often used for specimen plantings in woodland gardens, snow camellias provide a longer flowering season than the late fall-blooming sasanquas. This spreading, smaller-growing snow camellia works very well as an espalier.
