Home > Camellias > Autumn flowering Camellias

Generally much less well-known and appreciated than their spring-flowering cousins, the autumn-flowering camellias provide cheer in the dull days of autumn and early winter, with their small neat leaves,bright coloured flowers and unusual scent. Most are varieties of Camellia sasanqua, with a few assigned to the closely related species Camellia hiemalis and Camellia x vernalis, and as a group are often just refered to as 'Sasanqua Camellias'.

Unlike most camellias, they are tolerant of hot sun and for this reason are widely grown in Australia and California. In the UK they are best grown in a sunny, sheltered position where the warmth and high light intensity will ensure that they flower well.

Because of their bushy habit, they also make fantastic hedges. Plant 2ft between each plant, mix the varieties up to give different colours and enjoy the mass of blooms.

The sasanquas can be grown quite well in soils that are nearer to neutral, and will also tolerate either drier or wetter conditions better than most other camellias. Some of the more compact varieties make excellent plants for containers.
