Camellia x 'Winter's Red Rider'
The small leaves and slow growth create an attractive, compact plant which is perfect for areas where other Camellias will be too big. So far this has grown slightly faster than 'Winter's Rose', but should stay under 5' for ten years. The single blooms are bright lavender pink with notched petals. An Ackerman introduction, 2000.
