Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - sasanquas are as versatile as they are beautiful. Use them in mixed borders and hedges where they can provide fall/winter color. They always look great in containers and planters and become spectacular when they bloom. The low-growing varieties make effective groundcover in shady places and on steep hillsides where mowing is difficult. Single specimens planted where they have room to assume their natural shape make engaging focal points on lawns and near patios. Care: sasanquas can cope with many different soil types. They prefer rich organic acid soils (the same as azaleas and rhododendrons). Provide plants with an organic mulch such as leaf litter or shredded bark. These plants have beautiful natural shapes but if you need to do some pruning it is best done "lightly" and in very early spring before the buds form. Broken shade is preferred but sasanquas are tolerant of full sun (especially if well watered). Sasanquas need adequate water to look their best but they are suprisingly tolerant of drought once established.
