Winter's Star Camellia

Camellia x 'Winter's Star'

SKU
01525
This tough and cold hardy bloomer hails from the U.S. National Arboretum collection. Single, violet-pink blooms appear over a period of four to six weeks in autumn, creating a stunning contrast to the dark green, glossy foliage. The self-cleaning petals eliminate the task of dead-heading! Use as a single specimen, for foundation plantings, or along woodland edges.

Provide organically rich, well-drained, acidic soil. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed with an acid fertilizer after flowering. Fertilize sparingly to prevent leggy, unattractive growth.
