Camellias - Pink Flowered Japonicas
Pink Flowered Camellia Japonicas and hybrids. These are the large flowered Camellias like your grandparents grew. Camellias are evergreen shrubs that are highly popular throughout areas with acid soils in zones 7 to 9. Add them to the garden or landscapes and enjoy them in containers.
Smokey Dawn produces medium to deep pink, perfect form flowers that are edged in purple in cooler weather. This seemingly unknown Camellia, is very similar in all other regards to the exceptionally popular Purple Dawn (a.k.a. Mathotiana Supreme) Camellia including its ultimate size and vigor and is most likely a sport or seedling of that Camellia. Smokey Dawn came to us via Corey Stanford of Forest Hill, Louisiana in the 1980's and probably originated at his nursery. It begins flowering early in the season (December-January-February) and flowers over an extended period. Item# 11342
