Cold Hardy version of Ave Maria?

joannembJune 18, 2012

I love the shape and color of Ave Maria, but am in zone 6 (Cleveland, OH) and need a cold hardy camellia. I have April Snow ordered, but would also like a pink, and Ave Maria is my all time favorite camellia---I would love to grow it in my yard. Is it considered a "double"? So I can at least do more accurate searches? Thanks

You may want to check the Winter Series and the April Series of cold hardy camellias. Winter's Star Winter's Rose and Winter's Peony are somewhat close color-wise. Ave Maria is classified as a double peony.
