Yuletide Camellia a great holiday shrub

Yuletide CamelliaIt's hard to pass up a shrub with a Christmas name, especially one with festive colors that blooms during the holiday season. Yuletide camellias can be found in many of the same places the more common Camellia sasanquas are located, such as near old homes and public buildings.

Yuletide is an award-winning favorite bearing loads of red flowers coupled with bright yellow stamens. It is considered compact in form. Oddly, many that I see in landscapes want to develop naturally into a conical or Christmas tree shape. With a little selective hand pruning, this would not be hard to accomplish. However, if you prune harder, they develop a nice mounding shape.

We buy most other holiday plants on a yearly basis, but Yuletide is a plant that will bloom every year for the holidays. It also offers the bones and structure needed in the winter landscape because of its evergreen nature.

Sasanquas are more sun-tolerant than the Camellia japonica and usually will withstand temperatures 10 degrees colder in the winter. In the 1983-84 freezes, the sasanquas survived better than the japonicas. All camellias require acid soil, but sasanquas tolerate greater extremes in moisture than will most japonicas.
