Snow White Camellia

Camellia japonica 'Snow White'

A pure white, perfect form Camellia whose medium-sized flowers provide a brilliant contrast to the deep green glossy foliage. In our garden, Snow White has been exceptionally slow growing and has barely reached 3' high in 30+ years. I cannot say for sure that our cutting grown plants will grow as slowly under good conditions but I would expect it to have a compact upright to rounded habit. Either way Snow White should be an excellent choice for containers, bonsai, and in front of larger growing cultivars in the garden. Item# 11343

The huge white fruitily fragrant flowers of the Southern Magnolia can reach up to 12" across and are set against a backdrop of deep green glossy foliage in mid to late spring. Pollinated flowers are followed by cones whose fruit ripens to bright red and are often used as additions to fall and early winter bouquets, wreaths, and other types of floral arrangements.

In a full to mostly sunny position limbs will often reach to ground even on mature trees and the dense thick foliage makes a nearly impenetrable mulch beneath them.
