Kanjiro -- winter hardy?

OK, I'm brand new to this Camellia business, and today I bought my first -- a Kanjiro. I'm afraid I didn't make the right choice -- it was one of those impulse buys... Is this variety winter-hardy? How big/wide can I expect it to get? Particular pest/disease issues I should worry about? TIA.

RE: Kanjiro -- winter hardy?

Hey klajeck,

I just brought a Kanjiro home the other day. It most closely resembles some of the beautiful flowering camellias i have been admiring in other people's landscapes. As i understand, Kanjiro is a vigorous upright grower that can get to 10+ feet high at maturity and it is cold hardy down to 10F. It may be borderline hardy in your climate, but if you put it in a protected location you shouldnt have any problems. Even if it is topkilled from extreme cold, it should sprout back if the roots have been well protected with mulch. I think you made a good choice.
