Jerry Hill Camellia

Description
Many camellias are hardy as far north as Zone 6, but with an early and mid-winter bloom, their flowers are too frequently hit by frost to enjoy every year. Not so with this Ackermann hybrid – it's a late season bloomer so your risk of petal loss is reduced. The doubling flowers are rosy-pink and medium-sized, and the plant is dense and upright with dark green, glossy evergreen leaves. Like all Camellias, it prefers shade and will tolerate heavy and loamy soil; but be certain to protect from winter wind and ice, especially if planting north of Zone 7. It is somewhat tolerant of snow and cold. Grows well in a large container if you prefer to bring it into a three-season room for the winter. Camellia japonica 'Jerry Hill'
