Snow On The Mountain Camellia
Frilly white flowers brighten the dark days of winter!
We don’t want to bring back bad memories of high school English essays, but we want to point out that you’ve encountered Snow On The Mountain Camellia (Camellia sasanqua 'Mine-No-Yuki' - also known as Camellia sasanqua 'White Doves') before, even if you don’t remember it.
Where, you ask?
In chapter 11 of that great American classic “To Kill a Mockingbird”, Scout’s brother Jem reaches the end of his rope with the old woman up the street who continually taunts them because their father, Atticus, is defending a black man on trial. In a fit of rage he takes his sister’s baton, runs through the old ladies yard and he “did not begin to calm down until he had cut the tops off every camellia bush Mrs. Dubose owned.”
Those camellias she owned?
Snow On The Mountain.
These gorgeous, super-frilly, pure-white flowers bloom on evergreen plants that grow up to a mature height of 25 feet. The flowers are awesome cutting flowers and make wonderful holiday decorations when they are floated in a bowl of water. The shrubs are easy-care in dappled shade and acid soil. They are beloved southern garden shrubs and have definitely stood the test of time in southern gardens.
