Winter's Waterlily Camellia 
Camellia hybrid  'Winter's Waterlily'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 6a-10b (5b?)  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 6a, where this Camellia is not reliably 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

One of the most cold hardy of Camellias (USDA Zones 6a-10b), in fall to mid-winter Winter's Waterlily produces an abundance of gorgeous, anemone to formal double winter white flowers with rays of yellow emerging from the center on large shrubs of 8 to 10 feet tall and wide, making it an excellent candidate for a natural hedge, as a focal point specimen, or "limbed up" to form an attractive, small evergreen tree. Its 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. 

Winter's Snowman is recognized as one of the most cold hardy and heat tolerant of all Camellia surviving winter's as far north as USDA Hardiness Zone 6a and possibly 5b! We'll play it a little safe and suggest some winter protection during the coldest days in zone 5b. Either way, it's ranking is of the highest in the cold tolerant camellia category. This camellia performs well as far south as USDA Zone 10b.




Landscape & Garden Uses

A taller growing Camellia of 10 feet tall and wide, Winter's Snowman 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.) Lower branches can be removed to for a magnificent small tree which 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.

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.
