Sasanquas love to grow in a warm full sun to partly shaded position. Prune after flowering and in summer to maintain a compact heads. Once established sasanquas will grow in most soil types, however, they prefer a well-drained slightly acidic soil. Once established they are quite drought tolerant. Fertilise in late spring and summer with a specific Camellia fertiliser or a complete organic fertiliser.
