Camellia Hybrids Camellia hybrida Winter Series

Description

Ackerman hybrids, developed for cold hardiness after a series of cold winters nearly destroyed the collections of C. japonica and C. sasanqua at the U.S. National Arboretum. Since  C. oleifera showed no injury, Dr. William Ackerman made interspecific crosses between this and C. sasanquaC. hiemalis, or C. vernalis selections. The resulting hybrids showed little or no winter injury as far north as zone 6b and were released in 1991. Good as specimen plants, foundation plantings, or naturalistic plantings at the edge of a woodland. These plants are mildly resistant to damage by deer.
