The April Tryst Camellia is an upright, evergreen bush with dark-green, glossy leaves, growing over 5 feet tall. In April it carries large, 4-inch blooms of rich red, with a dense, twisted center of red and white miniature petals. It carries many buds and blooms in succession over several weeks. This is one of the most cold-hardy camellias available, and it is a reliable bloomer even in zone 6, where other camellias fail. It can also be grown in a pot and kept in a cool place for winter, in any zone. This gorgeous bloom brings camellias to gardeners who thought they couldn’t grow them.

  • Large double flowers in bright red with white flashes in the center
  • Blooms for weeks through April and into May
  • Beautiful evergreen bush when not in bloom
  • Hardy even in zone 6
  • Easily grown in suitable soil and light

Partial shade, or light full shade are ideal for the April Tryst Camellia, which needs moist, rich, well-drained soil. The soil should be acidic, with a pH of 6.5 or less, or you can grow it in a pot with suitable soil. It rarely suffers from any pests or diseases and it is easy to grow if given the necessary soil and light conditions. Water regularly during dry periods and fertilize in spring.
