Camellia sasanqua ‘Cleopatra’ ~ standard tree
Autumn flowering Camellia! Our standard Camellia sasanqua is a fantastic evergreen plant. A clear stem standard tree that have been trained and pruned in the nursery so the stem is perfectly straight until the canopy begins at around six foot tall. Camellia japonica are not vigorous trees, so once mature they will only require a gentle prune once a year, even though they are slow growers they do have the capacity to grow to four or five meters tall and being evergreen can be used for screening buildings.
However Camelia japonica must be planted in a sheltered position, as very cold winds in Winter can damage leaves badly and damage the form of the plant.
