The April Rose Camellia is an extremely hardy variety suitable for gardens in zone 6, where other camellias won’t grow. It is also so beautiful you will want to grow it, even if you garden in warmer areas. It forms a dense, upright evergreen bush with glossy leaves, but it is the flowers that will win your heart. Formed with perfect geometry, the many overlapping petals are a rich, glowing pink. Flowering begins in March and continues for a full 8 weeks, with buds opening in succession, keeping your bush in constant bloom. This plant will grow up to 8 feet tall, and be around 5 feet wide, and it is ideal for woodland gardens, shady beds and growing on containers.

  • Rich, deep pink flowers for 8 weeks in spring
  • Lush, glossy evergreen foliage is always beautiful
  • A top choice for zone 6 gardens – very cold-hardy
  • Forms a beautiful upright bush to 8 feet by 5 feet
  • Easily grown in partial shade and acid soil

The April Rose Camellia is hardy from zone 6 to zone 9. It grows best in partial shade, or the light dappled shade beneath deciduous trees. Plant in acidic soil, with a pH below 6.5. The soil should be rich and organic, moist but well-drained. In suitable light and soil it is very easy to grow, with no problems and very little care needed. If you don’t have suitable soil in your garden you can grow this bush in a large pot for many years, using soil for acid-loving plants, and feeding with fertilizer for camellias, azaleas or rhododendrons. Feed in spring and early summer.
