The Ruby Camellia (Camellia japonica 'Ruby') is a captivating evergreen shrub, cherished for its beautiful flowers and lush foliage. This versatile and low-maintenance plant adds a touch of elegance to gardens and landscapes, making it a favorite among garden enthusiasts.
The Ruby Camellia is a medium-sized evergreen shrub, typically reaching a height of 3 to 4 feet and a spread of 4 to 5 feet. With its dense, rounded growth habit, this plant is an excellent choice for use as a specimen plant, foundation planting, or even as part of a mixed border. Hardy in USDA zones 7 through 9, the Ruby Camellia thrives in partial to full shade and prefers well-drained, acidic soil.
One of the notable features of this plant is its ability to provide year-round interest, with its beautiful flowers in late winter and early spring and its attractive foliage during the rest of the year.
The true showstoppers of the Ruby Camellia are its striking flowers, which bloom from late winter to early spring, providing a much-needed burst of color during the colder months. The blooms are large, up to 4 inches in diameter, with a mesmerizing deep red hue that contrasts beautifully against the dark green foliage. Each flower is composed of numerous, overlapping petals, creating a full and lush appearance.
The Ruby Camellia's blooms not only add visual interest to the garden but also provide a valuable nectar source for pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, during a season when food sources can be scarce.
In addition to its enchanting flowers, the Ruby Camellia is prized for its lush, attractive foliage. The evergreen leaves are leathery and glossy, with a dark green color that provides a striking backdrop for the vibrant red flowers. The foliage adds texture and year-round color to the garden, making the Ruby Camellia an excellent choice for creating a dynamic and visually appealing landscape.
