Camellia Garden and Nursery – open to the public

    Hi ..I have a Mrs D W Davis descanso…spelling may cannon hill brisbane…have a question how to propagate.. thank you mervyn

  2. Propagate the same as for any camellia – sasanqua and Japonica – as a cutting in summer – around mid/late December for us – when the wood is ready. Use a rooting hormone for semi hardwood cuttings. Cover with a plastic bottle to maintain humidity and keep moist and in a shaded petition. Roots should be viable after 4 to 5 months. You can also graft on to sasanqua July to September or air layer. Hope this helps.
