Named for its cold tolerance as far north as USDA Zone 6a, 'Winter's Fire' was perhaps Dr. Ackerman ™s most intriguing cold hardy Camellia introductions. It sports abundant large flowers with a mix of red, pink and coral on the petals, and don't be surprised if some of the petals display white splotches! In our gardens the flowers of Winter's Fire appear October into December providing unrivaled winter interest when there's not much else blooming in the garden. The plant has a columnar form weeping habit that reaches 6 to 10 feet tall and only about 4 to 5 feet wide depending on pruning. Great for those narrow spots in home foundation plantings and other areas. The semi-glossy, deep green foliage provides a perfect backdrop for the abundance of delightful flowers which are excellent for cutting and displaying in your favorite vase.
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring. We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture."
