Why Yuletide Camellias?
Imagine gorgeous winter blooms that require no maintenance: With our Yuletide Camellias, you get both – beauty and amazing benefits. The Yuletide greets your visitors throughout the holiday season...and most of the winter!
Blooms begin in September and continue throughout much of December, even into January. And as an evergreen, this shrub can be used as a property barrier, foundation planting or accent plant in any area of your garden.
Plus, Yuletide Camellias are virtually maintenance-free, requiring no care to bloom year after year! They’re drought tolerant and don’t need pruning (though you can trim for even more voluminous blooms). This shrub can handle any conditions Mother Nature throws at it.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Select a location with full to partial sun (4 to 8 hours per day) and well-drained soil. Afternoon shade is good to protect the Camellia from getting too hot.
When you're ready to plant, dig your hole about 2 inches shorter than the depth of the root ball and 2 feet wider than the width. Place your plant, carefully backfill your hole, and press down gently on the topsoil. Finally, mulch to conserve moisture and water to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Feel the soil under the layer of mulch every few days. If the soil is dry, then water your Yuletide and allow the water to soak into the soil as you pour. If you planted in the warmer season, you may need to monitor the moisture every day. In cooler, moist weather, you may not need to water for weeks.
3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your Yuletide Camellia in the spring. Using a soluble fertilizer for acid-loving plants once or twice a month in spring and mid-summer is best.
4. Pruning: After your blooming season has ended, you’ll want to remove any dead or weak wood (a gray tinge to the bark is an easy way to identify dead branches). Prune the thick area on the stems, which will mark where the prior year’s growth ended.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Received this plant almost 2 weeks ago. I was truly impressed with its size (for an online order) and its health (lush and green)! Here's hoping it thrives and grows! Thank you!
My Camellia seems to be establishing itself in its new home! Looking forward to blooms hopefully later this year.
I have to wait to see it flower but what I just got today and planted is healthy and full and I'm very happy with it. Got a Moonglow Juniper as well and I love that as well. It truly is a beautiful and blue. Very happy today with this order.
I purchased two Yuletide Camellias and both arrived within the time frame promised. Both Camellias were neatly packaged and were very healthy looking. I planted one in my front yard garden and the other in my back yard garden. So far they are doing excellent. My friend dropped by my house and saw them and fell in love and I purchased one for him also. Very pleased with my purchases and I can wait to see them bloom!
I received this and was surprised at how small it was (I purchased the 1 gallon). It is so small that I am growing it in a large pot and will plant it in the fall with my other row of Yuletide Camellias. Having said that, next time I would buy the 3 gallon size. The Camellia itself is in absolutely beautiful condition. Healthier than the ones I sometimes see at the garden centers. I would re-purchase. Everything shipped fast and arrived in excellent condition (including the Kiwi we planted.)
