Camellia Sasanqua

This is the picture of the Camellia sasanqua  I took near my house. In Japan the pink and white sasanqua are often used for hedge of houses and parks. The name of "sasanqua" seems to come from Japanese word "sazanka".

The flower of the Camellia sasanqua looks a lot like the Japanese Camellia, but the falling way is quite different. The sasanqua's petals fall one by one. ( look at this picture)

On the other hand, the Japanese Camellia will drop as it blooms gracefully. In a week or so, I will upload a shot of the Japanese Camellia in my garden.
