Camellia sasanqua 'Autumn Sunrise'
This is a favorite of Dr. Clifford Parks because it is one of the earliest C. sasanqua to start blooming in the fall and the heavy bloom set is quite striking. The white flowers have a red tip on each petal which gives great contrast. The flowers are cup shaped as they open and are large singles. A Camellia Forest Introduction, 2008.Hardy to USDA Zone: 7b
