Special Attributes

April Remembered is a cultivar within the April Camellia Series developed to have improved winter cold hardiness and a later bloom cycle than most other Camellia japonica

April Remembered Camellia blooms in late winter through early to mid spring producing an abundance of fragrant, large, 4-5 inch semi-double pink flowers with almost-white glowing centers and dark pink at the tips of each petal, Bright yellow yellow stamens are a nice accent as well. The glossy dark green foliage provides amazing contrast and a wonderful backdrop for the beautiful flowers.  It's one of the few Camellia japonica recommended for growing in USDA Zone 6a, as far north as St Louis, Missouri!

Landscape & Garden Uses

A moderate growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 8-10 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide, April Remembered can be grown as a shrub or small tree. As a shrub, it is ideal for use as a hedge or background plant, in groupings, and is especially nice as espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall.) When "limbed up" to form a small tree it serves well as an attractive and colorful specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. Great for cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors overwinter for those who live above USDA Zone 6a, where not winter hardy. Find Your Zone >

Spacing:  5-7' for solid hedge; 10'+ for space between plants

Cultural Preferences

Camellia adapt well to various soil types however prefer a moist but well-drained acidic soil that is rich in organic matter. Constantly soggy soil is a slow killer. In general, Camellia grows and blooms better in partial shade with some shelter from the hot afternoon sun. Morning sun with afternoon shade or filtered sunlight is perfect. All-day filtered sun is fine.
