Ooh, that's very pretty! I wonder if that would grow well here where it's colder...

I read that it is only hardy to zone 7 (which is my area) and the fall blooming variety is hardy to zone 6.

I went looking for planting zones, then narrowed in on this plant in particular. I may be able to grow a certain breed of it: "Normally, camellias cannot be grown in colder climates. However, breeding of camellias has produced many cultivars which are tolerant of zone 5 and zone 6 winters. Camellias can now grow in parts of New England, Pacific Northwest, even Ontario, Canada." I'm a bit north of the PNW, so I might come across a plant that would make it!

Hi ladies ~ I'm Denita and I'm in the Central time zone. I love cabbage roses, any color. I don't have much of a green thumb for flowers. But I can grow veggies with the best of them!

Hi Denita and Welcome! I don't have much of a green thumb either, but love growing veggies and herbs.
