Grow Camellias for Color in the Winter Garden

Grow Camellias for Color in the Winter Garden

For a plant that blooms in the colder months of the year the camellia is hard to beat. In areas where the winters are too hard for it to thrive outdoors the camellia can be grown in a greenhouse or conservatory where its shiny evergreen leaves and colorful flowers will cheer the darkest winter day. This article by Marianne Lipanovich which I found on the Houzz website describes several popular varieties of this attractive shrub.

It?s easy to understand why versatile camellias are a go-to plant for gardeners in warm-winter climates. They?re attractive evergreen shrubs or trees that are not hard to grow and are at home in a variety of garden settings. Even better, camellias bloom prolifically in fall and winter, adding much-wanted color to the landscape. Flowers come in varying shades of pastels and reds and in a variety of forms, some of which can resemble roses, peonies and anemones.
