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