This brand new shrub from Monrovia growers comes to us from the northern hardy series of camellias. Previous varieties have not been cold resistant enough to survive in our zone 6 climate, but these new varieties are winners all around. These varieties aren’t too big either, growing to be about 4-6’ tall and wide and they are evergreen so they keep their dark green foliage all year. They like full sun to partial sun, but they are best if they are in a southern location. This will increase the amount of blooms it puts out at the beginning of the season. Camellias are one of the very few shrubs that will put out blooms in February, when all of us know, winter is still lingering around. They bloom for about 2-3 weeks with shades of pink, red, and white, and help remind us that spring is not too far away.
