Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting any Camellia as they prefer fall planting with less watering than you might think. In NC our soil is clay so we prefer to use pine bark soil conditioner when planting Camellia, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, and Azalea.

In peak bloom, the abundance of buds and flowers almost hide its foliage. Jury's Yellow reaches a mature height of 8 to 12 feet and a mature width of 5 to 7 feet. Jury's Yellow and Lemon Glow are our two offerings in a yellow camellia, Elaine Lee is almost yellow but considered white.
Teas/tisanes can be made from all camellias, for varied flavored results depending on the variety and processing methods used--some cultivars have caffeine, while some do not. There are resources available online for the hobbyist and production-minded tea makers alike. Research, experiment, process and use at your own risk.
