Cold Hardy, Zone 6 Camellia

By being cold hardier than the rest, Spring’s Promise Camellias bring fragrant flowers farther north than ever before. They have a strong tolerance for ice, snow, and freezing temperatures and don’t allow them to stop their outstanding floral show. 

Spring’s Promise Camellias are known for their large, rosy red blossoms that bloom as soon as it warms up during the mid to late winter. They can’t wait until spring to fill your landscape with vivid color.

Each large blossom is 2 and ½ inches wide with bright red petals, and a yellow center that creates a display of contrasting colors and invites onlookers to get lost in their radiant beauty. The bright flowers have a long blooming period in order to fill your landscape with color for months, lasting from mid winter into the spring.

Spring’s Promise Camellias are often praised for their bright flowers, as well as their attractive evergreen foliage. Their lush canopies are filled with dark green, glossy, oval shaped leaves that serve as the perfect backdrop for the vibrant blossoms to pop against.

While Spring’s Promise Camellias make for stunning, stand alone accent pieces they also are an excellent choice for hedges and privacy screens. When planted in rows their thick foliage will grow together to create a solid living wall.

The Spring’s Promise Camellia is a compact ornamental tree that can fit anywhere. By only growing to about 6 to 8 feet tall, and 6 to 8 feet wide they will fit perfectly in any space, without taking over.

Spring’s Promise Camellias don’t make a fuss. They’re low maintenance, and require little care. They can also be easily trimmed and kept in particular shapes and sizes. They can even be trained into tree forms. With Spring Promise Camellias in your landscape, the creative possibilities are endless.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Spring's Promise Camellia

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Spring's Promise 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 Spring's Promise 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 Spring's Promise Camellia again after the transplant is complete.
