Camellia April Dawn Shrubs

Camellia japonica 'April Dawn'

Camellia April Dawn Shrubs are part of the April Camellia Series developed to have improved winter cold hardiness and later bloom cycle than most other Camellia japonicas. It's one of the few Camellia japonica recommended for growing in USDA Zone 6, as far north as St Louis, Missouri. Camellia April Dawn produces an abundance of fragrant, white double flowers with dark pink streaking that are set against a perfect backdrop of glossy, deep green foliage. April Dawn's upright narrow form lends well to smaller spaces where the majority of Camellia japonica won't fit.

How to Care for Camellia April Dawn Shrubs

We suggest when planting your newly purchased Camellia April Dawn plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil, you may need to add a locally-sourced compost or topsoil to the backfill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a backfill soil for Camellia April Dawn Shrubs because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Camellia April Dawn spread through the loose, nutrient-rich soil much easier than if you used solely the existing soil, which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant too deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. It is a naturally-occurring, beneficial fungus that colonizes on the new growing roots of plants. It creates a barrier between the roots of the plant and fungus and pathogens that can cause root rot. We love this product and use it on all plants we install in our own gardens. Bio-tone is a gardener's best friend and can help guarantee your success.
