April Snow Camellia
Huge Blooms from a Cold-Hardy Camellia
The April Snow Camellia is famous for having exceptional winter hardiness, and thrives in growing zones 6-9... areas that are too cold for most camellias.
You'll enjoy glossy foliage and fragrant blooms, so be sure to plant them in areas where everyone can see them. They look great near entryways or patios.
This spectacular evergreen shrub grows upright in a rounded form. Large, dark green leaves are thick and provide a stunning backdrop for snow-white flowers. These blooms are elegant- some people compare them to white roses.
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.
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. It makes a striking accent, foundation or mixed bed plant. Looks great in groups of 3 or 5.
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.
