The Sasanqua Camellia (Camellia sasanqua) is an evergreen flowering shrub in the Theaceae family of camellias.

It is native to China and Japan.

It grows to 5 metres (16 feet) tall.

The glossy, green leaves are elliptical and about 3-7 centimetres (1-3 inches) long with finely serrated margins. The leaves are used to make tea.

The Sasanqua Camellia flowers are 5-7 centimetres (2-3 inches) in diameter with 5-7 white to dark pink petals. The flowers are mostly single or semi-double.

It blooms in autumn, but only for a couple of days before it drops its petals.
