Tea, Camellia sinensis is rated out of 5 by 3.Rated 4 out of 5 by Suegardener from Love my Tea plants (Camellia sinensis I have bought 2 tea plants from this site. Ordering was easy, both plants came healthy with dark green leaves. I have planted in one gallon pot in next day and left in porch. However, the leaves seem burnt by sun in CA central coast (zone 9). There are some new growth, I've noticed. Not sure, if the regular Miracle grow potting soil is good enough for them or not. They grow in Himalayan region, so I am sure, they can withstand cold climate, but not sure, if CA sun is ok for them or not. Moved them to partial shade in porch, still worried. Hopefully, they will make it. They both are babies, I will keep posted about them if it helpsDate published: 2015-04-15Rated 5 out of 5 by TeaPlantGuy from Tea plant cold hardiness? There are many sites with conflicting info on Camellia Sinensis hardiness zones, some say it can be grown upto zone 6b, and I am near that borderline. I bought your tea plant last year, and I planted it in a larger clay pot, and have it on the porch, away from the potential of damaging frost, but I am testing it for winter hardiness. We are almost through the winter, and my plant still has green leaves on it! I am pretty sure that it will bounce back in full bloom this year, and I am happy to report that it has survived a cold Pennsylvania winter! I would not risk leaving it out in the snow overnight, but it has held up very well in freezing temperatures.Date published: 2013-03-18Rated 5 out of 5 by farnsy from beautiful plants After months of anticipation these plants showed up in beautiful condition and at the.perfect time to plant. Plants look like I could begin harvesting leaves already! Wish there was a bit more planting information as these aren't typical plants you would plant every day, but with the condition they showed up in it seems the transition.should be pretty easy. I'll update how these plants do in our hot, dry (interment of rain), but humid summers.Date published: 2012-03-14
