The April Melody Camelia is a rose red single camelia. It blooms from January through April with more flowers toward April. It has 2 1/2″ to 3″ diameter flowers with bright yellow stamens and pistils in the center. These are exposed in these single flowers so honeybees and other early season pollinators can easily access the pollen and nectar.
The April Melody Camelia grows compact and erect from 5′ to 8′ tall and is hardy in zones 6 to 9. Plant in a protected location in zone 7b and all of zone 6 for best results. It will need protection in winter if temperatures approach single digits and below.
Mulch camelias to conserve moisture and cool the soil. All camelias benefit from afternoon shade in summer.
