More cold tolerant than other camellia varieties, meaning northern gardeners can enjoy this wonderful Camellia in Zone 6 when planted in areas with protection from the drying winter winds.

How do I plant my Camellia White Shrub?
We suggest when planting your newly purchased Camellia White by the Gate Shrubs 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 White by the Gate Camellia 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 White by the Gate 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.
