Camellia X 'Winter's Star'

 

Definitely one of the more cold hardy camellias available, the Winter’s Star Camellia is a hybrid originating from camellia oleifera (cold hardy) and camellia hiemalis (showy flower). The Winter’s Star Camellia being more cold hardy can grow in regions as cold as zone 6 and is relatively care-free maintenance wise. Each of its petals feature 6 pinkish-magenta blooms that encompass its bushy gold stamens. Bloom times start as early as October and run through November and contrast beautifully against its lush dark green foliage making this shrub great as a bordering low hedge or even grown nicely as a specimen plant in a tub or container.

 

Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting any Camellia as they prefer 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.
