Dig into the details


Yuletide Camellia (Camellia sasanqua 'Yuletide') is a popular evergreen shrub known for its stunning, festive red flowers and attractive, glossy foliage. As its name suggests, the Yuletide Camellia is a winter bloomer, providing a burst of color and cheer during the holiday season when most other plants have gone dormant. Hardy in USDA zones 7 to 9, this versatile plant can be grown in a variety of garden settings and makes a lovely addition to any landscape.

The Overall Plant

The Yuletide Camellia is a medium-sized shrub, typically reaching heights of 8 to 10 feet and widths of 4 to 6 feet. It has an upright, compact growth habit and can be easily pruned to maintain a smaller size or a desired shape. This sun-loving variety thrives in well-drained, slightly acidic soil and can tolerate partial shade, although flowering may be reduced in shadier locations.

Yuletide Camellia makes a beautiful specimen plant, adding winter interest to the garden when few other plants are blooming. It can also be used as a foundation plant, hedge, or privacy screen and is suitable for growing in large containers on patios or decks.

The Flowers

Yuletide Camellia is renowned for its vibrant, single-petaled red flowers that emerge from late fall to early winter. Each flower measures 2 to 3 inches across and features a striking central cluster of bright yellow stamens, creating a beautiful contrast against the red petals. The flowers are mildly fragrant and can attract pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, to the garden during the winter months.

The winter-blooming characteristic of the Yuletide Camellia makes it an excellent choice for holiday-themed gardens or as a festive gift for garden enthusiasts. It can also be used to create stunning winter floral arrangements, adding a pop of color to indoor spaces.

The Foliage

The Yuletide Camellia boasts elegant, evergreen foliage that provides year-round interest in the garden. The leaves are dark green, glossy, and elliptical in shape, measuring 1.5 to 3 inches in length. The foliage contrasts beautifully with the vibrant red flowers, creating a visually appealing display during the blooming season.

In addition to its aesthetic appeal, the evergreen foliage of the Yuletide Camellia can provide valuable shelter for birds and other garden wildlife throughout the year.
