April Rose Camellia Japonica
Camellia japonica 'April Rose'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 6a-9b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 6a, where this Camellia variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

'April Rose' is a cultivar in the April Camellia Series developed to have improved winter cold hardiness and a later bloom cycle than most other Camellia japonica. It is one of the few Camellia japonica recommended for growing in USDA Zone 6a, as far north as St Louis, Missouri!

'April Rose' produces an abundance of absolutely gorgeous, 4-inch wide double flowers graced with shades of deep pink to rose red, presenting an eye-catching show of color in March, April, and May. On rare occasion we see a bloom that has white stripes on the petals. Glossy dark green foliage provides amazing contrast and a wonderful backdrop for the plentiful flowers.




Landscape & Garden Uses

A small to moderate growing Camellia with an upright habit of growth to about 8 feet tall and 5 feet wide, April Rose can be grown as a shrub or small tree. As a shrub, it is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, as hedge or background plant, and is especially nice as espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall). Lower branches can be removed to form a very attractive small tree that serves well as a focal point specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to Camellia gardens, cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that in cooler climates north of USDA Zone 6a can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.. Find Your Zone


Spacing:  3 to 4 feet apart for solid hedge; 8 feet or more apart 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.
