1 year old plant = 2 qt pot.
This is a true red colored fall blooming Camellia. The flowers are small single that start opening in October and will continue blooming until March in milder areas. The leaves are very dark green and are more rounded than typical Sasanquas. The plant branches well and grows at a moderate rate. This resulted from work by Dr. Tanaka who investigated the origins of C. X vernalis. He discovered old Camellias in Japanese gardens which may have been some of the original C. X vernalis plants. (C. X vernalis 'Gaisen' X C. japonica)

Beautiful but... April 3, 2016
Reviewer: Andy Grogan from Somerset, KY United States  
Beautiful & tried 6 (1 free replacement). The 1st one was the best, it lasted 3 years. Bloom lightly from late Oct until Mar.

Last 3 bought in Jul 14 & they made it through til Dec 15. 1 left.

Died from drying out although I watered them weekly.  1 of the $15 size left & going to plant in front of my window, north of house, Zone 6. 1st attempt to grow outdoors.

After review of growing indoors I need to drench in water at least twice weekly. They are drying out so I need to pot them with dirt from the top two inches in my yard. The potting soil in the store - no good.

I will make changes & try again with another two as house plants. I will keep on north of house as south of house is too sunny. Actually every time new growth grew last year it would dry up & drop as the plants shrank.

I hope my review of trying to grow as amateur beginner helps. I review next spring whether my changes in camellia care make me successful.
