Buy Camellia × vernalis 'Yuletide' camellia: A seasonal treat

  • Position: partial shade (but not east-facing)
  • Soil: moist but well-drained, humus-rich, acid soil (or ericaceous compost for container-grown specimens)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: November to January
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Glossy dark green leaves provide a sumptuous backdrop for the profusion of yellow-eyed, red flowers, when they appear in late autumn and early winter. Their colouring is very striking - and is perfect for the build up to the Christmas season, but the dark green foliage offers year-round structure and interest. If left to grow naturally, this is a relatively compact shrub with a pyramidal habit, but it can also be trained against a wall, or grown in a large pot if space is at a premium.

  • Garden care: To prevent damage to the emerging buds and flowers protect from cold, dry winds and early morning sun. Water established plants in dry weather to prevent bud drop. Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser in mid-spring and again in June. Top-dress annually with shredded bark or well-rotted leaf mould. After flowering, lightly trim or prune any branches that spoil the appearance of the plant.

I've situated this plant in a large tub outside my kitchen window so it can be seen in the darkest day's of winter. It arrived as a good sized pot plant,although it it to small to have developed any flower's it is full of promise.

I loved this plant when it arrived last year with a number of flowers already open. However, although the plant looks green and healthy I have not managed to get it to reflower. Fingers crossed for next year.

I had seen this Camellia and liked it previously then bought it when I saw the price reduced. It arrived very well packed and in perfect condition. It is in a shady position in my garden among other plants chosen for winter and spring interest, it is yet to flower but it's naturally arching shape and glossy deep green leaves make it a very attractive addition all year round.

When is the best time to plant this camellia?

Palacegarden

Hello there As a general rule fully hardy plants that are grown in containers can be planted at any time of year as long as the soil isn't frozen solid or waterlogged. The best times are in the autumn when the soil is still warm enough to encourage root growth but the plant isn't in active growth, or the spring before the temperatures start to rise, so now is a great time to plant a camellia.

Camellias (the winter-flowering sasanquas)

Most camellias need acid soil to do well. However the sasanquas, which flower between November and February, will tolerate good garden soil. They are found naturally in Southern Japan and have been grown in Japanese gardens for centuries as ornamentals an
