Camellia sasanqua 'Paradise Audrey' is a hardy evergreen shrub with glossy green foliage and pale shell pink double flowers in autumn. It is an upright growing plant to around 4 metres, and is excellent for hedging, espalier work, as a screen plant or as a specimen plant. It can be grown in a large container.
Sasanqua camellias can be grown in a sunny spot as well as being well suited to partial shade. They like a slightly acid, moist soil. Water regularly until established. They will handle periods of drought once established. They can be left to grow naturally, or clipped to shape. Fertilise in spring with a camellia and azalea fertiliser or general purpose fertiliser. A good layer of mulch around the plant will help to keep the root zone cool, conserve soil moisture, and help to keep weed growth down. They have few pests or disease problems.
