Special Attributes

Is it a rose or a camellia? Jerry Hill is definitely a Camellia and one of the few with flowers that stand up to cold winter temperatures. Its gorgeous, full double, deep pink flowers look like traditional roses and are produced over a VERY LONG period from late fall all the way through winter and into early spring! The amazing beauty and winter blooms of this Ackermann Hybrid land it at the very top of our Favorites List. To enjoy these beautiful blooms all winter, take several cuttings and display them in a vase, or float just one flower in a bowl of water.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to 6 to 8 feet tall and 5 to 6 feet wide, the Jerry Hill Camellia 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, 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 desired height to form a highly attractive and colorful small tree for use as a focal point specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to pink color theme gardens, Asian gardens, cut flower gardens and woodland borders. Also suitable for containers that can be brought indoors for the winter north of USDA Zone 7a, where this variety is not reliably winter hardy. Find Your Zone

Suggested Spacing:  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.
