Camellia japonica 'Victory White'

 

For many of us, winter can be tough with the cold, dark, and dreary days. Once in a while, though, a hint of spring is revealed. If the winter season gets you down and you need a reminder that warmer days are ahead, plant the 'Victory White' camellia in your garden. This camellia is a vigorous and fast grower, reaching heights of 8-10 feet and width of 8 feet, and is a mid-season blooming japonica. So that means it will bloom from January to March--right when we need a little glimmer of spring. Medium-sized, loose white peony blooms contrast with shiny dark green foliage that remains all year. A bit more cold tolerant than some varieties, having been successfully tested to zone 6B. Great for screen or a large hedge. 

 

Teas/tisanes can be made from all camellias, for varied flavored results depending on the variety and processing methods used--some cultivars have caffeine, while some do not. There are resources available online for the hobbyist and production-minded tea makers alike. Research, experiment, process and use at your own risk.

    Victory White is a fast grower and has large leaves. It will fill in very quickly as a screen.

    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.
