Camellia sasanqua 'Cleopatra' is a popular evergreen shrub that is highly prized for its ornamental value. It is a member of the tea family, Theaceae, and is native to Japan, Korea, and China. This plant is known for its delicate, showy flowers, which appear in autumn and winter when few other plants are in bloom. The 'Cleopatra' cultivar of Camellia sasanqua is a compact shrub that typically reaches a height of 4 to 6 feet and a spread of 3 to 5 feet. It has a dense, upright growth habit with glossy, dark green leaves that provide a striking backdrop for its flowers. The flowers of 'Cleopatra' are semi-double, with pale pink petals that are edged with deeper pink. The flowers are about 2-3 inches in diameter, and their centers are adorned with golden stamens. Camellia sasanqua 'Cleopatra' prefers a well-drained, acidic soil and a partially shaded location. It is an easy-to-grow plant that is relatively low-maintenance, and it is tolerant of a range of growing conditions. It is an excellent choice for a mixed border or as a specimen plant in a garden. It can also be grown in a container, which makes it a great choice for a patio or balcony.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
