Camellia x 'Survivor'
If you're trying to push Camellia's northern limits, this is the plant for your garden. 'Survivor' has proven it's cold-hardiness several times over in our gardens. Named after surviving a -9°F night in 1985, this plant also performed stunningly during a more recent winter's sustained subfreezing temperatures. At over 30' tall, our plant now towers over others in the area.
This selection produces an abundance of blooms and is an excellent choice as a large specimen plant or for use as a hedge. A Camellia Forest introduction, 1986.
