Camellia japonica 'April Snow'
This relatively slow growing, well-formed plant has white, rose-form double flowers. The medium to large flowers open late in the season. Good white clones have been the most difficult to select in general because the white petals show cold injury much more easily than pinks and reds. The leaves are exceptionally large.
