If you’re looking for an evergreen bush that adds some shine to your landscaping, give the Shi Shi Gashira Camellia a shot. Ideal for warmer areas, this bush will give you year-round color and an extra layer of depth when sunlight reflects off its glossy leaves.
Growing an average of 4’-5’ tall, the Shi Shi Gashira Camellia produces a large spread, spanning around 6’-8’. Typically blooming in the fall and winter months, the bush produces vibrant pink flowers to go along with its dark green foliage. This bush is fantastic for creating hedges, thrives in mass plantings, and also works well in woodland gardens where large trees tower over shade plants.
Shi Shi Gashira Camellia Care
Needing only filtered sun, these bushes are also capable of enduring abundant sunlight as well. Ensure the plant gets a moderate amount of water, but make sure the area is adequately drained, as consistent moisture is important. Pruning is necessary after flowering – doing so will help control the size and shape of these bushes. And as long as soil quality is relatively good, the Shi Shi Gashira Camellia is more than capable of flourishing. Choose a protected area for these bushes, as dry, cold winds can damage the buds and flowers.
Shi Shi Gashira Camellia Spacing
When it comes to spacing, there’s no set rule for this plant. For normal use, allow for 6’-8’ between bushes. If they’re going to be used for privacy or wind protection, decrease the distance down to 5’-7’.
