About Sparkling Burgundy Camellia (Sasanqua)

The Sparkling Burgundy Camellia is a southern favorite and winner of the ‘Award of Garden Merit’ from the Royal Horticultural Society! This camellia produces brilliant pink, frilly double-blooms from autumn to early winter. These flowers are medium-sized and reach 3-4″ wide. Furthermore, the Sparkling Burgundy’s blooms emerge in scores and coat nearly the entire shrub when in full bloom!

The Sparkling Burgundy Camellia has dark green leaves contrasting beautifully with its bright blossoms. These evergreen leaves are rigid, serrated, and glossy, and they remain attractive all year long.

This is a naturally compact variety that stays dense with foliage. Therefore, lovers of low-maintenance landscapes can leave the clippers in the shed.

This pink-blooming camellia reaches a mature size of 8-12′ H x 6-8′ W. However, you can just trim it yearly to a desired size.

Use the Sparkling Burgundy Camellia as a hedge, privacy screen, specimen, accent, or container plant.

Check out a few other classic camellia selections, the Yuletide Camellia, the Shi Shi Gashira Camellia, and the Kanjiro Camellia.

Sparkling Burgundy Camellia Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 7-9, down to 0°F when fully established.

Prefers Partial Sun for best results, 2-4 hours of direct sun daily. Remember that too little sun results in decreased foliage and bloom potential.

Plant in moist, acidic soil rich with organic matter. Additionally, top-dress the soil underneath your plant with 2-3 inches of composted manure to keep your soil luscious and healthy.

Water the Sparkling Burgundy Camellia 2-3 times per week during the first growing season. Afterward, this pink-blooming camellia proves itself to be notably drought tolerant.

Apply a few inches of mulch around the base of your plant yearly to protect it from extreme temperatures.

Fertilize yearly with an acidic plant fertilizer to promote growth and the overall health of your plant.

Spacing Your Sparkling Burgundy Camellia 

For a seamless planting, space your Sparkling Burgundy Camellia 2-3 feet apart from plant center to plant center. For space between plantings, plant them 8+ feet apart.
