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, its ranking is of the highest in the cold tolerant camellia category. Winter's Joy Camelli produces large, semi-double bright-pink flowers from early fall in to winter that look like roses when they're opening. The lustrous dark green foliage provides the perfect backdrop and contrast of color for the flowers that are excellent for cutting and displaying in your favorite vase.




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 specimen, in groupings, or as a hedge or background plant in landscape borders and is especially nice as corner plant or espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall) in home foundation plantings. As your camellia grows, lower branches can be removed to form a highly attractive, small evergreen tree that serves well as a colorful focal point specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to camellia gardens, pink theme gardens, Asian gardens, cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and woodland borders. Also suitable for growing in containers that can be brought indoors during winter where this plant is not reliably winter hardy north of USDA Zone 6a. Find Your Zone

Spacing:  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 is fine.
