Camellia japonica 'April Rose'

 

'April Rose' camellia is perhaps one of the most beautiful members of the 'April' series of cold hardy, spring-blooming camellias introduced by Dr. Clifford Parks. Most notable are its picturesque formal double, multilayered flowers, which most often are solid pink to slightly red, but can have some white accents.  Blooms between January and April. Plant in shade to dappled sun with some protection from wind and hot afternoon sun. If you like to have a source for fantastic cut flowers, plant this camellia--you won't have to wait until summer to have some roses!  

 

Our 7 gallon camellias are up to 42" tall and 30" wide when planted. In our 7 gallon selections, we choose plants that grow fast so that there will be a quicker impact in your landscape.

April Rose Camellia is my favorite formal hot pink bloomer, it remind me very much of Pink Perfection for the pale pink or Seafoam for white. We are now offering all three in a 7 gallon container. All are vigorous growers and are up to 42" tall not including the 7 gallon pot.

Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting any Camellia as they prefer fall planting with less watering than you might think. In NC our soil is clay so we prefer to use pine bark soil conditioner when planting Camellia, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, and Azalea.
