The Yuletide Camellia is a beautiful evergreen shrub that grows in shady places and produces glorious bright-red flowers at Christmas time and right through the winter. It will grow from zone 7 into warmer zones outdoors and can also be grown in a pot as a porch plant in much colder areas. It needs no pruning to form an upright, dense bush with handsome deep-green glossy leaves, reaching 6 feet or more in height. It grows best in light shade but will grow in full-sun too if the ground is moist. It prefers acidic soil but can be easily treated to grow in all kinds of soil and it is usually free of pests and diseases. If you are looking for a plant that will brighten up the winter months in your garden and be a beautiful foliage plant for the rest of the year, then the Yuletide Camellia is an ideal choice.

  • Large, bright-red flowers in mid-winter
  • Handsome glossy rich-green evergreen foliage
  • Broad, upright growth to 6 feet tall
  • Perfect for semi-shaded locations
  • Easily grown in large pots and planters

The Yuletide Camellia grows outdoors in zones 7, 8 and 9, and it can also be grown in pots and overwintered in a bright, cool place, such as a porch, so that wherever you live you can enjoy this fabulous plant. It grows in acidic soil, or in potting soil for acid-loving plants, and it should be planted in semi-shaded places, or in bright shade such as the north side of a building. It is normally not bothered by pests or diseases and it is easy to grow, given the right soil and light conditions. It should be grown in moist, well-drained soil.
