Camellias

More than 3,000 named kinds of camellias exist, in a remarkable range of colors, forms, and sizes and are not eaten by deer. The two most common species, japonica and susanqua, grow well in zones 6 to 10 and even though seen in the South often, these plants originated from Southeast Asia. Depending on the variety they may bloom in late fall, winter and early spring adding color to the garden when little else is in flower. Susanqua camellias can often have smaller blooms but larger numbers of flowers. Japonica has an April series of hardy camellias, named for the time they typically bloom in the cooler, northern part of their range such as ‘April Blush’ and ‘April Remembered’.
