Camellia sasanqua 'Paradise Baby Jane' is a compact hardy evergreen shrub with small white flowers edged with pink, and with crepey petals. The flowers are semi double with bright yellow stamens. It is a slow growing miniature variety with small glossy green leaves. It is particularly suited for bonsai work, as well as very low hedges, or as a specimen plant. It can be grown in a large container. It can be kept to a lower height with regular pruning.
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 fertilser or general purpose fertiliser. A good layer of mulch around the plant will help to keep the root zone cool, deter weed growth, and conserve soil moisture. They have few pests or disease problems.
