Snow Flurry Camellia Camellia 'Snow Flurry'

Description

This shrub grows at a moderately fast rate. Mass in mixed shrub boarders for great winter color.  Grows well in containers and looks natural in a woodland garden.  Needs consistently moist, well-drained acidic soil.  Provide a sheltered site as flower and leaf buds can be damaged by cold or wind.  Early morning and direct afternoon sun can be too harsh for this shrub as is prefers partial shade.  Prune after flowering.

This plant is great for cut flowers and is mildly resistant to damage by deer.

'Snow Flurry' is an anenome form camellia that is an Ackerman hybrid (learn more about the Winter Series camellias) cross between Camellia oleifera (cold hardiness) and Camellia 'Frost princess' (flower form).

Insect and Disease Problems: Camellias are susceptible to viruses and some fungal diseases such as dieback, cankers, flower blight, and root rot.  Watch for aphids, planthoppers, and spidermites.  They are especially problematic on stressed plants.
