Camellia sasanqua Ball
Sasanquas love to grow in a warm full sun to partly shaded position. Prune after flowering and in Summer to maintain a compact shape. 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.
Topiary balls are ideal for formal gardens or modern Japanese gardens, though can add structure to any garden. They are great planted in clusters, or used in pots to frame an entrance or walkway. In Autumn and early Winter the sasanquas abundance of flowers will add colour and texture to your garden. Varieties available will vary seasonally, check for current availability.
