Camellia sasanqua 'Shikishima'
The word 'Shikishima' is a poetic name for Japan and this sasanqua is a good choice to represent the country. The double flowers are a medium pink and especially appealing when they first open. The medium sized blooms open early to mid season. The narrow leaves have a nice dark green color and the plant grows quite densely without pruning.
