Camellia Professor Charles S. Sargent produces dense rounded 3.5″ wide flowers that are packed with the dark red petals over an extended period. Petals are long, narrow, curled or rolled much like the appearance of an incurved chrysanthemum. A vigorous and dense upright to rounded evergreen shrub.
Camellias prefer an acidic, humus rich soil with an organic mulch and average moisture. Once well-established they need little additional care and will continue to perform for years to come. Most Camellias do best where they get light shade or morning sun and the light filtered shade of pines seems to be perfect.
