The large pink blooms on this camellia will flower for most of the autumn months. This evergreen shrub also makes a perfect hedge.

Shi Shi Gashira is a low-growing camellia perfect for small and tight spaces. Plant 3-4 ft. apart to form a nice compact hedge, or brighten any foundation planting.

Ideal solution for screening air-conditioning units, well pumps, trash bins, or any other unsightly residential or commercial areas.

The bright pink blooms appear mid-season around early October, and will continue to bloom into early December.

The flowers are double blooming in nature, and very large – nearly 3-5 inches across!

Tolerant of a wide range of soil and environmental conditions, Shi Shi Gashira is a top-notch performer. All camellias are easily pruned into any desired shape with no fear of damaging the plant. We recommend pruning in early spring before the new growth has emerged.

Your Camellia arrives with a large, 3 gallon root structure for the price of what others charge for a 1 gallon. We grow it 3-4 years so that it will immediately look good in your landscape. This is several years longer than our competitors, but it's a difference you'll love when it starts exploding with beautiful blooms.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Camellia 'Shi-Shi Gashira'

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Camellia 'Shi-Shi Gashira'.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Camellia 'Shi-Shi Gashira' gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Camellia 'Shi-Shi Gashira' again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Beautiful flowers! I planted these over the summer and they are doing great. It's Nov and they have started blooming even though some critters kept breaking branches off of it. I live in zone 7 and have lots of pine trees.

I ordered 2 1gal shishi gashira, 1 yuletide camelia & 1 frost proof gardenia in June 2013. I live in zone 7. It arrived fast. Very happy with both the yuletide & frost proof gardenia. Planted them per instruction & they are thriving very well so far. Leaves are just shooting up, very lush & green. On the other hand, I received the shishi gashira with yellowing on the bottom leaves with dots of brown/black spots on it, one is worst than the other. I planted them right away & plucked out some of the yellow leaves, they aren't dead, they are still shooting leaves but the yellowing of the leaves didn't stop either. I noticed there are some tiny bugs/insects attached to the underside of the leaves. Upon research, I came to the conclusion that it may be scale...not very happy with it! I ordered some horticultural oil spray & I might try that once I get it & write in an update later.
