Camellia, Hardy hybrids

Theaceae
Evergreen, Shrubs, Flowers

These camellias, bred from C. oleifera, are among the hardiest of all; they withstand temperatures to –10°F (–23°C) given an overhead tree canopy and protection from cold, drying winds. Most produce semidouble flowers; bloom period is fall and winter. Pink varieties include ‘Winter’s Beauty’, ‘Winter’s Joy’, and ‘Winter’s Rose’; white ones include ‘Lu Shan Snow’, ‘Winter’s Snowman’, and ‘Winter’s Waterlily’. ‘Winter’s Star’ is purplish red.
