Ackerman lists this camellia as hardy to -15 F, with exceptional frost resistence even when buds are partly open, compared to other camellias. Parents are C. oleifera 'Plain Jane' x C. sasanqua 'Mine-no-yuki." His tables list 11 cultivars of fall blooming camellias that survive at -15 F, and one spring blooming one. 'Ashton's Supreme' a fall blooming variety field tested to survive to
-17. Field testing was performed in three or more locations over an eighteen to twenty year period. I am planting it in spring.
