A very strong grower. They can produce long limbs which I cut back by half and created a strong frame. It has created a beautiful screening hedge in about 5 years.

This is a very pretty sasanqua with it's single crepe paper 3 inch blooms. It is approximately 10 feet tall and is planted under some tall pine trees. I find it very hardy - this last summer it survived > 50 days over 100F plus a drought (no rain all summer). I only watered it twice (good overnight soaking) during this period; and it responded with blooms as if nothing had happened.

This is a 3m tal shrub, with leathery, shiny leaves. It blooms on fall, producing lots of medium to large flowers. These are semi double, with white petals edged with pink, and a cluster of yellow stamens in the middle. Versatile plant, can be grown under full sun or shade, with moderate watering.
