One of the most popular sasanqua planted in Australia. Setsagekka's glossy, dark green foliage brings a lush feeling to the sunny areas of your garden while the abundant, large, single white flowers with wispy petals and yellow centres add elegance.


Sasanquas love to grow in a warm full sun to partly shaded position. Prune after flowering and in Summer to maintain a compact shape, will handle a hard prune, if you need to reshape. Though they prefer slightly acid soil, sasanquas will grow in most soil types, when it is well drained. When mature they are quite drought tolerant. Fertilise in late Spring and Summer with a specific Camellia fertiliser or a complete organic fertiliser.
