Winter's Snowman Ice Angels® Camellia is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with an upright narrow habit of growth. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition. This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It has no significant negative characteristics. Winter's Snowman Ice Angels® Camellia is recommended for the following landscape applications; Accent, Mass Planting, Hedges/Screening, General Garden Use, Container Planting.
Planting & Growing
Winter's Snowman Ice Angels® Camellia will grow to 12 ft. tall, and only 5 ft. wide. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 40 years or more. This shrub does best in partial shade to shade. It requires an evenly moist well-drained soil for optimal growth, but will die in standing water. It is particular about its soil conditions, with a strong preference for rich, acidic soils. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered location. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in both summer and winter to conserve soil moisture and protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America. Winter's Snowman Ice Angels® Camellia makes a fine choice for the outdoor landscape, but it is also well-suited for use in outdoor pots and containers. Its large size and upright habit of growth lend it for use as a solitary accent, or in a composition surrounded by smaller plants around the base and those that spill over the edges. Note that when grown in a container, it may not perform exactly as indicated on the tag - this is to be expected. Also note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden.
