CF
3 year old plant = 3 gallon pot.
'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.

3 year old plant = 3 gallon pot. This compact, erect and moderate grower has single, small rose red blooms. 'April Melody' starts blooming early and extends over a long blooming season. This variety was selected because it is a strong grower and very cold hardy.

Camellia japonica 'April Tryst' Camellia japonica 'April Tryst' Camellia japonica 'Ashton's High Rise'
CF

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')

This medium light pink miniature to small peony form flower is very floriferous and very cold hardy according to Mrs. Kitty Ackerman. (Limited Supply)

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.

The bright pink flowers of 'Ice Follies' are large and semi-double and appear in mid to late season. The plant has upright growth. (Zone 6b) [2 quart]
The bright pink flowers of 'Ice Follies' are large and semi-double and appear in mid to late season. The plant has upright growth. (Zone 6b) [3 gallon pot] 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.

1 year old plant = 2 qt. pot.

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.

2 year old plant. The semi-double to rose-form flowers are large and of a strong, rich red with a hint of pink and are produced in the middle of the Camellia bloom season. The upright form with spreading branches is almost as wide as it is tall, and it is very hardy. The leaves are relatively large. ('Snowbell' × 'Midnight') Zone 6B A Camellia Forest Introduction

One of a few Camellias to survive the -9oF cold in 1985, this plant bears small to medium, light red, semi-double flowers in great profusion. The flowers start to open early in the season which is usually in late January or February for us. Since the plant makes so many buds it can still be blooming in early April. This moderate grower forms a nicely shaped bush with a compact habit. ('Bernice Boddy' x 'Midnight'

From a plant breeder’s point of view this plant is a mystery because the parent plant is not exceptionally hardy and very rarely even makes seeds. 'Spring Song' makes small light pink flowers which open to a trumpet shape. The foliage is quite delicate and it blooms early in the season. (seedling of 'Sukiya')

The rose-red, medium sized, single flowers are produced in late fall, during warm periods in the middle of winter and into the early spring; thus the promise of spring. 'Spring’s Promise' was selected for use in the garden landscape because of its excellent upright and compact plant form, tendency to flower freely and tolerance of sites with slightly poor drainage.
