Autumn flowering Camellias are a real delight with a mass of dainty blooms at an otherwise dark time of the year . Their flowers are never very big and are mostly single or semi-double. They come in shades of red, pink and white, and most have a almond or musky scented to them.
Which include mostly sasanquas forms, hiemalis and x vernalis are more informally shaped than the Japonicas. It isn't necessary to prune a sasanqua unless you want to create a formal clipped hedge, in which case it is best to prune after the flowers are over.
Sasanquas can create a superb dense hedge which will flower every autumn. After the flowers have finished the plant produces interesting shiny black seeds (in Japan these are used to make Camellia oil and beads). The autumn flowering form will tolerate soil towards the neutral and even drier or wetter conditions.
Excellent in containers and trained up a wall or fences, also idea for that small garden.
