Special Attributes

Winter's Joy is recognized as one of the most cold hardy of all Camellia surviving winter's as far north as USDA Hardiness Zone 6a! We'll play it a little safe and suggest some winter protection during the coldest days in that Zone. Either way, it's ranking is of the highest in the cold tolerant camellia category. This camellia produces large, semi-double bright-pink flowers from early fall in to winter. It's lustrous dark green foliage provides 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 float just one flower in a bowl of water. 



Landscape & Garden Uses

A low to moderate growing Camellia with an upright, rounded habit of growth to about 6 to 8 feet tall and 5-7 feet wide, Winter's Joy 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:  4-5' for solid hedge; 9'+ 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.
