The Yuletide Camelia is a spectacular evergreen shrub that is perfect for the holidays. It hard to pass up a plant with such a beautiful name and it’s rare to find one that blooms during the colder seasons. The Yuletide is an award winning favorite of many. Blooming from September to December, this shrub will provide beautiful blooms when most plants do not. Extremely drought tolerant and, once established, the Yuletide can withstand any conditions.

This Red Camellia is an evergreen shrub that serves well as a property barrier, foundation planting, or even as an accent in your landscaping. Growing to an impressive height of 8-10 ft. and width of 6-9 ft. it allows privacy where it is needed most. Bearing an abundance of red flowers with bright yellow stamens, this shrub will add color to an otherwise bare landscape during the cooler seasons.

Virtually maintenance free, with little care you can enjoy blooms year after year with the Yuletide Camellia. Plant your Camellia in acidic soil and ensure that it is planted partial shade to partial sun conditions with filtered sunlight. Too much sunlight will burn up your camellia. Keep your shrub watered regularly upon first planted until established. Once established, reduce watering, fertilize, and prune after flowers have bloomed.

How To Care

Be sure to choose an appropriate location for your Camellia.

Planting Time: Plant any time of the year taking care to avoid temperature extremes on either end of the spectrum.

Sun: Part sun to part shade

Soil: Fertile, acidic, moist, but well drained

Watering: When newly planted, water deeply at least twice weekly. Camellias prefer a moist soil, but water requirements do diminish as the plant ages and is able to shade its own roots.

Mulching: Mulching is a great way to keep the roots cool, soil moist, and add nutrients to the soil.

Pruning: Prune after flowering if needed to remove dead and dying branches or correct aesthetic or structural issues.

Learn when to prune your flowering shrubs.

Nice plant

Revived my order very quickly. I am doing a large project that I've put 4 5ft Yuletide in at $135 per plant. I made room for this smaller vision. The plant looks great with lots of dark leaves just like it's big brothers but for such a tiny price. I would recommend PlantTree

I’ve used planting tree multiple times despite living in an area on the east end of Long Island NY- where there are many nurseries. Why? Ease- price, and delivery all make it the best choice. The tree and shrub stock I’ve ordered from Planting Tree have all come healthy, packed perfectly and have remained healthy.
