Arctic Rose Camellia 
Camellia hybrid  'Arctic 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 is not 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

Blooming mid to late season in April and May, Arctic Rose is a wonderfully unique cold hardy Camellia hybrid featuring large, semi-double flowers with brilliant deep pink to rose-red petals. Cold hardy to as far north as USDA Zone 6a, Arctic Rose has better cold tolerance than most camellias. Its large, glossy dark green leaves provide the perfect backdrop and contrast of color for the flowers. The truly stunning flowers and beautiful dark green foliage are excellent for cutting and displaying in your favorite vase, or for floating in a bowl of water.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to about 8-10 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide, Arctic Rose can be grown as a large shrub or small tree. As a shrub, it is ideal for use as a hedge or background plant, in groupings, or is especially nice as a corner plant or espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall) in home foundation plantings. As the plant grows, lower branches can be removed to form a highly attractive and colorful focal point specimen tree 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 can be brought indoors during winter above USDA Zone 6a, where this cultivar is not reliably winter hardy outdoors. Find Your Zone

Spacing:  4-5 feet apart for solid hedge; 10 feet or more 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 and evening sun is fine.
