(Hybrid Camellia, Two Marthas Camellia)

Camellia ‘Two Marthas’ is a hybrid developed by Dr. William Ackerman of the United States National Arboretum and is more heat and sun tolerant than most camellias. Two Marthas has an upright to spreading form, dark green, oval-shaped, evergreen leaves and a profusion of semi-double flowers in the later winter. The color of the flowers is pink, the individual petals are rose pink with dark pink around the edge and in the center is a mass of yellow-gold stamens.

(Hybrid Camellia, Winter's Charm Camellia)

Camellias are tender evergreen shrubs much prized in warm climates for their abundant, showy flowers, but also their leaves, shapes, and longevity. This one, ‘Winter’s Charm,’ is among the hardiest of all. It is a spreading, dense plant with small, glossy, green leaves and lavender-pink peony-like flowers in late fall to early winter. The flowers have one or two ranks of broad petals and a prominent center of petaloids (small petals) and yellow stamens. Prune for shape and size as needed, but only...

(Hybrid Camellia, Winter's Fancy Camellia)

The camellia 'Winter's Fancy' bears numerous purplish-pink, semi-double flowers in late autumn. The slightly crinkled petals surround a central starburst of yellow stamens.

Surviving temperatures of minus 20 degrees C, this cold-hardy camellia produces medium-sized, semi-double, raspberry-pink flowers from fall to early winter. Resulting from a cross between Camellia vernalis 'Takarazuka' and the C. oleifera hybrid 'Frost Prince', 'Winter's Fire' is one of many hardy camellias developed by William L. Ackerman of the United States National Arboretum in Washington, DC. Ackerman crossed the hardy Chinese species C. oleifera...

(Hybrid Camellia, Winter's Star Camellia)

Hardy camellias that will winter in areas such as southern New England are no longer a dream, thanks largely to the efforts of William L. Ackerman of the United States National Arboretum in Washington, D.C., who crossed the hardy Chinese species Camellia oleifera with tender camellias to produce a group of beautiful and tough hybrids. The cultivar 'Winter's Star' bears large single violet-pink flowers in October and November. A starburst of yellow stamens ornaments their centers. It forms...

(Snow Camellia)

Snow camellia is a slow-growing, long-lived, upright evergreen shrub prized for its late-fall to winter blooms. Known only in cultivation, it may have originated as a hybrid of Camellia sasanqua. Leaves are oval, dark green and glossy, with toothed edges. Small pink, rose-red, or white blooms appear from late fall into winter, with some cultivars having scented blooms. The flowers are somewhat heavier-textured and their bloom period is typically later and longer than those of the sasanquas....

The glossy, dark green and leathery leaves are pointed ovals with teethed edges.

Plant 'Kanjiro' in moist, acidic, humus-rich soil. It does best in bright partial shade, but will tolerate full sun if other conditions are ideal. Often used for specimen plantings in woodland gardens, snow camellia...

(Rose of Autumn Camellia, Snow Camellia)

The medium-sized, "rose-form" blooms of 'Rose of Autumn' are lustrous rose-pink and appear from late fall to midwinter. An open-pollinated seedling of Camellia hiemalis 'Kanjiro', this cultivar originated about 1990 at Green Nurseries, Fairhope, Alabama. It is one of many named selections and hybrids of snow camellia, Camellia hiemalis. Long grown and prized in Japan, snow camellia may have originated as a hybrid of Camellia sasanqua, and is known only in cultivation.
