  • Position: partial shade (but not east-facing)
  • Soil: moist but well-drained, humus-rich, acid soil (or ericaceous compost for container-grown specimens)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: October to December
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    An early flowering camellia, that will produce either semi-double or anemone-form flowers (and sometimes both on the same plant), in autumn and into winter. A useful and decorative evergreen, it has an upright habit that makes it useful for smaller gardens, and as it does not get too big it can be grown in a large pot, provided you make sure it is kept well fed and watered - very handy if your soil is not naturally acidic.

  • Garden care: To prevent damage to the emerging buds and flowers protect from cold, dry winds and early morning sun. Water established plants in dry weather to prevent bud drop. Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser in mid-spring and again in June. Top-dress annually with shredded bark or well-rotted leaf mould. After flowering, lightly trim or prune any branches that spoil the appearance of the plant.

Comments about Camellia sasanqua 'Winter's Snowman':

A stunning camellia but seems to be slow growing. This may be due to the soil but they have not grown much in the first year. Look very healthy though so I am hopeful they will flourish next season.

Comments about Camellia sasanqua 'Winter's Snowman':

I purchased this year it may be due to the plant being young but I have few buds and they are all very small. I can't imagine they will produce flowers next year. Rather disappointed as I particularly wanted this plant. However, it appears healthy so it may catch up in a few years.

    All year round interest. Lovely glossy foliage. Flowers at a time of year when blooms are in short supply.
