The April Kiss Camellia is a rare thing – a camellia that grows well and blooms profusely in zone 6. It is also going to survive freak cold winters in warmer zones, and it’s not just tough, it’s beautiful. The blooms have perfectly symmetrical geometry, and they are a wonderful warm and rich pink. Blooming begins in March or April, and blooming continues for up to 2 months. Out of bloom it has lovely rich-green foliage, ideal in shrub beds, woodlands, around the house or in planters. Renowned for its profuse blooming even when young, this is a ‘must have’ variety no matter where you live.

  • Perfect deep pink blooms with a formal look
  • Rich green foliage always looks great
  • Grows and blooms well even in zone 6
  • Excellent for growing in pots
  • Upright form is ideal for screening and hedges

The April Kiss Camellia is hardy from zone 6 to zone 9. Plant it in partial shade, or beneath light dappled shade from deciduous trees. Plant in acidic soil, with a pH below 6.5. The soil should be rich and organic, moist but well-drained. Once it has suitable soil and light, it is easy to grow, without pests or diseases and needing very little attention. Water during dry spells. If you don’t have suitable soil, grow it in a planter or pot, using soil for acid-loving plants. Feed in spring and early summer with fertilizer blended for acid-loving plants.
