Camellia japonica 'April Dawn'

  • $20.00

The candy-striped flowers of 'April Dawn' are mostly white with a few deep pink streaks; though occasional branch sports will result in varying color patterns, such as half white/half pink. The medium sized, formal double flowers are produced in profusion over a long season from mid to late Spring. The habit of the plant is upright and very vigorous. At first, young plants will grow rapidly but will fill in nicely after a few years. A five foot specimen in New Jersey has bloomed well for several years. A Camellia Forest Introduction, 1993.
