April Remembered Ice Angels® Camellia
Camellia japonica 'April Remembered'
|Description||The timeless beauty of camellias carried beyond their traditional range with a full hardiness zone more cold tolerant than most varieties; typically blooms later in colder regions. Semi-double flowers with luscious pink petals, creamy centers with golden stamens, and lustrous evergreen foliage. An excellent hedge, screen or foundation shrub.|
|Light||Filtered sun, Full shade, Partial shade|
|Watering||Water when top 3 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Fall through Mid-Spring|
|Mature Size||Reaches 6 to 8 ft. tall and wide; slowly grows larger with age.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Espalier, Hedge, Privacy Screen|
|Design Ideas||Such glorious blossoms should be reserved as a high profile focal point for close range at entries and for viewing through picture windows. Makes a superior foundation cover-up that cloaks featureless walls on more sun-challenged exposures. Deserves front yard stature or position at special points around patio or terrace. Beautiful evergreen foliage makes a fine informal hedge, screen or dark background for bright blooming beds and borders. Brings glossy foliage and elegance into dull woodland settings under big old shade trees. Well-adapted to the acidic soils beneath oaks, conifer and maples as well as mixed groves.|
|Companion Plants||Azalea (Azalea); Forsythia (Forsythia); Fern (Microlepia); Lily of the Valley (Pieris); Winter Daphne (Daphne)|
|Care||Provide organically rich, well-drained, acidic soil. Needs some shelter in harsh winter climates. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Thin to one bud per cluster to increase bloom size. Fertilize and prune lightly to shape after flowering.|

This fast growing very cold hardy cultivar can be dependably grown to 5 degrees Fahrenheit. Produces semi-double 4-inch blooms.|
