Camellia sasanqua 'Autumn Sentinel'
This striking plant has a very narrow, upright growth habit with distinctive foliage. The leaves are small, narrow and dark green and with a compact habit, create a very attractive plant for a hedge or specimen. The plant grows quickly and the small, pale pink blooms come early in the season. This plant comes from Bobby Green in southern Alabama but has grown well in NC for several years. It is formerly known as 'Bob Green'. We love this plant!
