Cold Hardy Camellias for Zone 6A and 6B
These Camellias, Sasanquas, and often intergeneric hybrids are considered to be reliably cold hardy and reliably flowering into zones 6B, mainly, with some considered suitable into zone 6A. This includes some that are even fragrant, an uncommon trait among these members of the Tea family or Theaceae. To learn more about how to grow these relatively easy evergreen shrubs checkout our Camellia and Sasanqua Growing Guide.
Zone 6B cold hardy! The small to medium-sized, medium pink to red, perfect or rose form flowers are produced in mid season or January to February. April Kiss Camellia is a hybrid that was selected for exceptional cold hardiness and reliable flowering even in those colder zone 6B climates. It has a slow to medium rate of growth developing into an upright shrub becoming rounded with age. Provide Camellias with a fertile soil rich in organic matter, with average moisture, and an organic mulch. Images courtesy of CamToo Camellia Nursery, all rights reserved. Item# 12995
