Camellia japonica 'Hagoromo' - Camellia
The pale pink semi-double flowers of the Camellia cultivar 'Hagoromo' make a beautiful contrast to the dark green, glossy leaves of this Japanese Camellia (Camellia japonica). Very good winter hardiness (winter hardiness zone 7b).
Camellia ‘Hagoromo’ (Camellia japonica) is native to Japan. It has been known and popular in Europe since the 19th century, also under the name of Magnoliiflora. The light pink to almost white flowers are semi-double and a beautiful contrast to the dark green, glossy leaves. Since the petals do not unfold/open as much as other camellias, they have a funnel-like appearance. ‘Hagoromo’ is a slow growing variety and has a slender crown. Its very good winter hardiness (hardiness zone 7b: -15 °C) makes it a classic garden camellia.
General information on Japanese Camellia: The evergreen shrubs with the glossy, leathery dark green leaves love semi-shady places and acidic, well drained but moist, humus-rich soil as well as acidic fertilizers (e.g. rhododendron fertilizer). Their thick flower buds are already formed from (late) summer, ripen from about September until flowering in February/March/April at 0 to 10 °C, and open in cool places around 10 °C. If the temperature is too high, the buds will fall off before they open: Japanese Camellias are not houseplants! But they are wonderful winter garden plants, which rightly bear the nickname "Roses of Winter". Or – due to their surprisingly high winter hardiness, depending on the variety – they can be planted out as permanent guests in the garden, protected from the winter sun with a shade net or fleece. When planted in the garden, flowering starts (depending on the weather) a few weeks later than potted Camellia in a conservatory.
