Plant of the Week: Camellia

As beautiful as sugar maple foliage is in the northern fall, camellia blooms in the South are unrivaled in their fall and winter beauty. As the rest of the garden is waning, camellia sasanquas provide a fresh infusion of color, delicate form, and subtle scent.

Yuletide Camellia (Camellia sasanqua 'Yuletide') is an exceptional winter plant, boasting single, brilliant, fiery red blooms centered with bright yellow stamens standing out in high contrast against dark green glossy foliage.
