Special Attributes

Winter's Waterlily is perhaps the most cold hardy Camellia we offer, possibly cold hardy as far north as USDA Zone 5b! An abundance of gorgeous, anemone to formal double snow white flowers with rays of yellow emerging from the center are produced fall into winter, when we can use color in the garden. The lustrous dark green foliage provides the perfect backdrop and color contrast for the flowers. The flowers and foliage are excellent for cutting and displaying in your favorite vase.




Landscape & Garden Uses

A taller growing Camellia of 10 feet tall and wide, Winter's Waterlily 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 a corner plant espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall) in home foundation plantings. As this camellia grows taller lower branches can be removed to form a highly attractive small evergreen tree which serves well as a colorful focal point specimen in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to camellia gardens, white theme gardens, Asian gardens, cottage gardens, cut flower gardens and woodland borders.

Suggested Spacing:  6-8 feet apart for solid hedge; 14 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.
