Leslie Ann Camellia

Finally, Leslie Ann is a camellia sasanqua that is popular in Louisiana and has been a longtime proven performer in Louisiana landscapes. Plants need a mostly sunny to partly sunny area and prefer acid, well-drained soil. The flower petals are bi-colored and sometimes tri-colored with blends of pink, blush and white. Leslie Ann is a mostly upright grower that will mature at 8 feet tall in the landscape. Plants are early-season bloomers – starting in late October and continuing until mid- or late December. All Louisiana Super Plants are “university tested and industry approved.” The four 2015 selections, as well as all the past selections, can be relied on to make great, colorful warm-season and cool-season Louisiana landscapes.
