Single to semi double, deep cerise flowers with petals showing a lighter shade at the base and centre of the bloom. Approximate growing 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. Watering daily over the warmer months is essential, particularly when establishing new plants.
