Rose of Autumn Camellia is the earliest variety to flower in late autumn, just as most trees and shrubs are going dormant for the year. The glowing pink flowers are loosely double-petaled and very long-lasting. The deep green foliage is extra glossy and nicely sets off other flowering shrubs and perennials all year long. Camellia sasanqua is reliably hardy in USDA zones 7-9 and may overwinter in zone 6 with plenty of protection from harsh winter winds and extreme cold snaps. 

The slightly smaller flowers have great resistance to powdery mildew while the foliage rarely experiences leaf scotch or blight diseases. Rose of Autumn has an upright growth habit that requires minimal pruning and is quick to reach its mature height in only a few seasons. Deer and rabbits rarely, if ever, browse Camellias due to their thick leaves and woody branches. Grow this Camellia as a specimen shrub in a winter garden where its evergreen foliage can shine or add it to a flowering hedge to extend the season of color well into late fall.

Rose of Autumn Camellia Care

Camellias are extremely low maintenance when planted in the right location. Partial shade is ideal to protect the thick glossy leaves from sunburn. Provide shade during the mid-day in warm climates. This shrub prefers rich, acidic soil. Fertilize your Camellia annually late in the summer as the flower buds swell. Regular watering is necessary until the shrub is established and then usually only during prolonged periods of drought. 

Deadhead Camellias after flowering has finished by carefully snapping off the spent flowers. Be careful to not disturb any developing leaf or flower buds. Prune camellias for shape in the late winter, as this shrub blooms on current season growth late in the summer. Pruning too late in the summer will result in less or no flowers for the fall and winter. 

Rose of Autumn Camellia Spacing

Rose of Autumn will reach an overall height of 6-8 feet with a narrow width of 4-6 feet. Space plants 4 feet apart when planting for a hedge. Otherwise, 5 feet apart, center on center, between other shrubs and perennials will provide plenty of airflow.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
