Camellia japonica 'April Blues' Camellia japonica 'April Blush' Camellia japonica 'April Blush'
(Zone 6A)- NEW! The newest introduction for Dr. Clifford parks cold hardy breeding line. This is a late blooming formal double that is rose-red in warm weather; but when it blooms in cool spring weather the medium sized flowers can be a bluish pink to purple color. The plant is vigor and upright to spreading in habit. The original plant survived the winter of 1985 when temperatures dropped to -9F and the plant is very resistant to winter cold.

'April Blush' grows into the classic Camellia bush with deep green leaves, shell-pink and semi-double blooms. It sets buds freely, and flowers in mid-season. The relatively slow growth guarantees dense leaves and a plant of smaller stature.

The candy-stripe flowers make this a unique plant for several reasons. The flowers are mostly white with a few deep pink streaks which makes it special; occasional branch sports will result in various color patterns such as half deep pink and half white flowers. The medium sized, formal double flowers are produced in profusion over a long season from mid to late season. The habit of the plant is upright and very vigorous. At first young plants will grow rapidly and after a few years they fill in very nicely. A five foot specimen in New Jersey has bloomed well for several years.

This vigorous upright grower with spreading branches has large, cream to pink shaded, semi-double flowers. The bud set is substantial, and the flowers are produced over a long period from early to late season. This selection is slightly larger in all respects and much hardier than its mother, 'Bernice Boddy'. I believe this to be one of the hardiest Camellias.

1 year old plant = 2 quart pot.

An erect plant with a medium growth rate forms a nicely shaped plant with bright red, medium sized anemone-form flowers. It has a heavy bud-set and flowers over a long period in the middle to late part of the season. In many varieties, dense clusters of petaloids in the center of the flower are easily damaged by cold before the flower opens; however, this clone opens flowers of good quality after periods of very cold weather.

1 year old plant = 2 quart pot. This medium-sized rose form double flower is pinkish red. Dr. Ackerman, the originator, recommends this one for sites requiring a narrow, upright plant. The blooms open mi-season and the leaves are a deep dark green. Hardy to USDA Zone 6B Parentage: (C. japonica 'Billie McCaskill' X 'Variety Z') CF
1 year old plant = 2 quart pot.
This outstanding cold hardy variety has pale-pink formal double flowers very late in the season. The medium sized flowers usually open from early to late April here in NC. Almost as nice as the flowers is the very shiny narrow foliage. The plant has a slow growth rate with a tendency to form many branches so that the shrub develops into a upright rounded shape without pruning. This plant has a plant patent and has been released by several large nurseries.

While working in Korea, Barry Yinger heard about Camellias growing on islands near the border of North and South Korea. He thought these could be very cold-hardy and collected specimens which were distributed and tested. Mr. Yinger made this selection at his garden in central Pennsylvania after temperatures dropped to -23°F. The single flowers are red and bloom early in the season. The plant is compact with handsome foliage.

A variegated branch sport of 'Korean Fire' found by Michael Vaughn.  Small single red flowers are produced in mid-winter.  Considering its parentage, this should boast great cold hardiness (zone 6a), though we have only had it a few years and have not tested for extreme hardiness.

This is one of the seedlings grown from seeds collected at the northern range of Camellia in Korea. This is similar to other cold hardy Korean selections but the single flowers have pure white petals. The leaves are dark glossy green and rounded as the edges of the leaf tend to curl under. The blooms open early in the season. For those of you in colder areas this is probably the best choice for a white spring bloomer.

1 year old plant = 2 quart pot. One of the oldest Camellias recorded in literature, this variety has been grown in Japan since 1695. The medium to large size, peony form blooms are a deep rose color and open late in the season. This plant has proven to be exceptionally cold hardy. Hardy to USDA Zone 6B

(zone 6B) – This is the virus free form of ‘Kumasaka Variegated’, and
thus the flowers are a clear deep rose color free of the white blotches on the petals
of ‘Kumasaka Var.’ see description of ‘Kumasaka var’. $15
