Product Details



    Camellia Sasanqua 'Yuletide' is a moderate growing shrub that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 7A through 7A. It matures to an average height of 8 feet to 10 feet and an average width of 8 feet to 10 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides shade and grows best when planted in sand soil that is well drained. In the fall Yuletide Camellia produces red flowers. The foliage is blue green in color. It attracts visual attention and is resistant to deer.

    Yuletide Camellia can be useful in the landscape along woodland borders and also in theme gardens.

    Noteworthy Characteristics

    Yuletide is one of the all-time favorite camellias among the Sasanqua varieties....and for very good reason! In late fall to mid winter, this evergreen shrub or small tree produces brilliant, fiery red blooms centered with bright yellow stamens. Blossoms stand out in high contrast against glossy, dark green foliage. 

    Uses

    Yuletide Camellia has many uses. As a shrub, it can be used as a specimen or in straight or curved rows to form attractive, evergreen hedges and screens. It can also be "limbed up" to form a very attractive small tree placed in small groupings or as a focal point specimen. It is perfect for use as espalier: trained to grow flat against a wall.

    Culture

    Camellias prefer a fertile, moist but well-drained, acidic soil. Constantly soggy soil is a slow killer. Your new camellia should not need regular watering after the first year unless there are extended periods of dry weather during summer. Camellias do best in partial shade or filtered sun. Avoid afternoon direct sun.

    I have to say I've ordered some very leggy camellias but this Yuletide is bushy, healthy, and was pruned just before shipping. As I'm in Zone 6 I hope to keep this Yuletide as a potted tree to bring indoors in winter but based on this tree I will hopefully order some outdoor camellia next spring I can plant and leave outside.

    Beautiful plant. Arrived in excellent packaging. Already planted. Waiting to see how it grows.

    Hi Vishal - Thanks for the compliments! It's best to plant Camellias where they will get morning to early afternoon sun with shade or filtered light during the afternoon. Plant them in well-drained soils. During the first growing season, water only enough to keep the soil damp, but not soggy. As with many other types of plants, constantly soggy soil can be a killer of Camellia.

    Good Growing!
