Large, semi double, peony style blooms of deep cerise-red. Early season flowering. Approximate height 1.5 – 3.5 metres, width 1.5 – 2 metres. Favoured planting positions are sheltered semi shaded sites or east facing aspects offering morning sun and afternoon shade. They can also be grown in full sun positions, provided they are watered daily during the warmer months and a thick layer of moisture conserving mulch is applied. Sasanquas are wonderful shrubs in their own right, but really come into their own when used for hedges, screening and espalier and also make ideal container plants when potted into large pots and tubs.
