Yuletide Camellia Sasanqua
Camellia sasanqua 'Yuletide'

Yuletide is one of the all-time favorite camellias among the Sasanqua varieties....and for very good reason! In late fall to mid winter, this evergreen shrub or small tree produces an abundance of brilliant, fiery red blooms with prominent bright yellow stamens on upright plants. The flowers stand out in high contrast against glossy, dark green foliage. This one is one of the best for espalier (training to grow flat against a wall).

Camellia prefer a well-drained acidic soil that is rich in organic matter. Constantly soggy soil is a slow killer. In general, Camellia grows and blooms better in partial shade with shelter from hot afternoon sun. Morning sun with afternoon shade or filtered sunlight is perfect. All-day filtered sun is fine.

Useful as a specimen or in groupings, it also makes a wonderful evergreen hedge, screen or background.

Arrived bushy, healthy and recently pruned
I have to say I've ordered some very leggy camellias but this Yuletide is bushy, healthy, and was pruned just before shipping. As I'm in Zone 6 I hope to keep this Yuletide as a potted tree to bring indoors in winter but based on this tree I will hopefully order some outdoor camellia next spring I can plant and leave outside.
