April Snow Camellia
Cold Hardy Camellia Gives You Huge Blooms
One more cultivar in the lovely new April series of Camellias is the April Snow, which is renowned for having exceptional winter hardiness and thrives in zones 6-9... where other camellias dare not dwell.
Gorgeous foliage and fragrant blossoms make this shrub a magnificent addition to any outdoor living space. Looks great near entryways or patios.
This spectacular evergreen shrub grows upright in a rounded form. Large, dark green leaves are thick and glossy and provide a stunning backdrop for snow-white flowers.
In the northern regions, the April Snow's graceful blossoms announce the arrival of spring. In areas to the south where winter climates are less chilly, your shrub may bloom much later in the year.
These blooms are so elegant, some people call it a giant white rose.
The April Snow Camellia is adaptable to most soil types and flourishes in partial shade. Plant them in decorative pots for portable color and ambiance around a deck or patio. This treasure makes a striking accent, foundation or mixed bed plant.
The dense evergreen foliage makes April Snow Camellias ideal for use as an ornamental privacy hedge. Plant these beauties about 4 feet apart in rows along your property line to create a secluded and tranquil atmosphere.
Maturing to heights of 6-8 feet with a similar spread, the April Snow Camellia is easy to grow and requires almost no maintenance once established.
