    Sasanqua or japonica?

    I just saw a sasanqua 'Kanjiro' blooming in the nursery, but I know that's premature. Those usually don't do anything here until January.

    That's one of my favorite winter flowers, but is has not been a reliable bloomer.

    These varieties are the result of crosses made by Dr. Ackerman using a very cold hardy selection of
    C. oleifera with C. sasanqua or C. hiemalis (fall blooming species) These varieties bloom in mid-Autumn
    and are quite attractive for the landscape.
