Camellia sasanqua 'Hiryu' is a stunning evergreen shrub that is highly prized for its delicate and beautiful blooms. This plant is a member of the Camellia family and is native to Japan. It typically grows to be about 6-10 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide, making it an excellent choice for a specimen plant in a garden or as a hedge. 'Hiryu' is known for its profuse, semi-double, bright pink flowers that bloom in the fall and early winter. The flowers are about 2-3 inches in diameter and have a sweet fragrance. They contrast beautifully against the glossy, dark green foliage, which has a slightly serrated edge. The leaves of the plant are also slightly smaller and more narrow than other Camellia sasanqua varieties, giving it a more delicate appearance. This plant is relatively easy to grow and care for, and it prefers well-drained, acidic soil. It does best in partial shade but can tolerate full sun in cooler climates. It is also drought-tolerant once established but benefits from regular watering in hot, dry weather.

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).
