April Dawn Camellia

Winter Blooming, Cold Hardy Camellia

If you long for something that flowers in middle of winter, then camellias are just what you need and April Dawn, a Camellia japonica, is one of the prettiest.

This camellia blooms mid to late in the season when cool nights are still holding back most spring flowering shrubs. The luxurious dark green leaves maintain their glossy shine throughout winter and by late winter the buds for blooms swell. Then the beautiful double flowers erupt. The color varies slightly from white through pink, all tinged with just a few streaks of dark pink making this late season camellia the perfect antidote to the late winter blues.

Being a late blooming camellia there is less danger that those late frosts will injure the blooms and you will have plenty of blooms to float in a bowl of water to give a pretty early spring table decoration.

As with all camellias, April Dawn prefers part sun where the white blooms stand out beautifully, but will grow well in a sunny position, if given some afternoon shade. It also responds well to pruning. Without pruning, the pyramid shaped shrub will get to 8-10 feet high and about 5 foot wide at maturity.

April Dawn camellia is a great shrub to give an area privacy, or partner the camellia with other southern favorites such as gardenia shrubs for a classic look in the landscape.

No one delivers quicker. This ensures that your plants arrive in the best condition possible, ready to pack on vibrant color.

Brighter Blooms Nursery ships most items throughout the year, when it's most convenient for you. Most other nurseries send orders out only twice a year (spring and fall), making you wait weeks or months to receive your plants.

If you wish to delay your order, please Contact Us or call 800-399-9514.

We strive to bring you the healthiest plants possible, so we ship via FedEx. We've tested all the major shipping carriers, and FedEx is the quickest and most reliable.

With Brighter Blooms, you get large, well-developed 1 and 3 gallon plants- not tiny quarts and liners. These older plants bloom faster, give you more color, and require less maintenance.

We've found out that other nurseries chop off branches just so that it will fit into the smallest box possible. This can damage your plant severely, and leads to disappointing performance. We don't do this- your plants have been pruned throughout the year by plant experts to encourage the most blooms and best form.

Shipping charges are approximately 19% off your order. Sorry, we cannot ship plants to Alaska, Hawaii or PO Boxes.
