Camellia sasanqua 'Yuletide'


If you want red flowers in your landscape during the holiday season, Yuletide Camellia is the one for you! This fall through winter bloomer has single, vibrant, deep cherry red flowers and lustrous dark green foliage. Great to add a pop of color in a darker areas, since it performs best in dappled shade. A good companion camellia is Long Island Pink Camellia as their leaf structure and growth habit is very similar.

Yuletide always makes me think about Santa, its flowers are truly Santa red. It usually blooms in November and is very full in terms of its leaf structure and amount of flowers. Yuletide blooms like crazy! One of my favorite Camellias for sure.

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.
