Pure white flowers on a low growing plant

Camellia sasanqua October Magic® White Shi Shi

Smaller in stature than most sasanquas, with porcelain white double formal flowers

In a sense, plant selection is similar to Thoroughbred horse breeding, or the Westminster Kennel Club…there are a lot of ribbons, but seldom do we find that single variety capable of becoming a legend in any particular category.  With ‘White Shi Shi’ we’re going for the gold! Selected for its similar bushy, spreading habit of the well-known ‘Shi Shi Gashira’, this low growing evergreen offers the same versatile performance when used in the landscape, and is durable enough for public spaces. Porcelain-white, double formal flowers provide a graceful display at a time of the year when fewer trees and shrubs are blooming, and last well into winter. A gold medal winner for sure!

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
