Camelia s. Shishi Gashira flowers in autumn to early winter. It has deep magenta double blossoms that are perfect in an Asian garden. Shi-Shi Gashira is considered by some to be the best landscape camellia. Its smaller size makes it more versatile and the red-pink blooms look better than many roses. It eventually reaches 5 feet in height. Often used as a foundation hedge an “accent” evergreen or as an entryway plant. It can be planted any time of the year.
