The Most Cold-Hardy Camellias

April Snow Camellias Are Cold Hardy Belles

- One of the most cold hardy Camellias
- Strong scented blooms
- Hassle-free, and guaranteed to thrive in your area

You know spring has arrived when this beauty begins to bloom. Large double white flowers emerge in March and continue through the latter part of April. With hundreds of flowers, you might forget there is foliage to go along with them.

Deep green foliage keeps this camellia interesting all year long. The large 4 inch leaves are thick and glossy. This makes 'April Snow' Camellia great for privacy hedges or screens. Just plant 3-4 feet apart and you will soon be creating your own private space.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your April Snow Camellia

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your April Snow Camellia.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your April Snow Camellia gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your April Snow Camellia again after the transplant is complete.

Have you ever seen a varigated leaf on some camellias?
lynn m on Aug 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, depending on the amount of light it receives some of the leaves can become variegated. Not enough light would trigger that. This in no way damages the plant. Hope this answers your question

can I make tea out of April Snow Camelia?
Bald & Ugly on Jun 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You would want what is known as the Cold Hardy Tea plant (Camellia Sinensis)
Would this plant tolerate winter winds as a hedge row?
Holly W on Jun 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My April Snow's are planed on the sheltered side of the house and are protected. I do have other camelia's I planed out in the sun and unprotected from the wind and as long as I have them well bark dusted against the heat of the summer they do fine. I have not seen any problem with the wind either. The ones unprotected are red camellias.
how fast does it grow per year?
A shopper on Aug 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am not sure but I am sure you could probably use Google to find the answer to your question. I purchased this for a friend that had lost a family member.
You say it has a scent.. Is it a strong scent and please describe it, like is it as close to a rose scent or lemone ,or gardina? Thank you for your time, and keep up the good work.From planting in Texas.
Jolly R on Sep 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Jolly - it is not real strong, no. Hmmm, I guess I'd describe it more like a gardenia.
