Bring a little Christmas cheer to your garden over winter with this glorious flowering Camellia
Unlike many of the usual winter flowering plants, Camellia 'Yuletide' will flower through Christmas and into early spring, with an abundance of brilliantly coloured, red blooms, each with a glowing cluster of golden yellow stamens at the centre - really eye-catching and very distinctive.
Typically, festive in sumptuous red and green, the luxurious flowers shine against the glossy leaves, making this compact shrub ideal as a Yule centrepiece in the garden - it can even be brought inside over Christmas in a pot as an unusual decoration, just remember to return it outside once the festivities are over.
More than able to bring winter interest to any garden border, you can even grow 'Yuletide' in a container, so even without a garden you can enjoy the magnificent display of flowers.
Fully hardy and easy to grow, there's no need to worry about complicated pruning, just snip off any branches that are dead, diseased or dying - so not only is this camellia easy on the eye, itís easy to grow too!
Grow Yuletide in a sheltered, partially shaded position out of drying winds in a moist but well-drained, fertile soil which needs to be acid in nature - if planting in a pot, use ericaceous compost.
Supplied as an established plant approx 50-60cm tall in a 21cm pot.
