Fuchsia flowers for the holidays! Stephanie Golden Camellia (Camellia sasanqua ‘Stephanie Golden’ ) is a little deceptively named. You’d think a flower with the word ‘golden’ in its name was yellow, right? Stephanie Golden is actually 18 petals of the most gorgeous shade of fuchsia available in a camellia (with a petite pot of canary yellow stamens right in the center for effect). Of course, that doesn’t mean that this still isn’t a golden addition to your garden! The famously huge, frilly blooms bust out all over this shrub in fall and winter when just about everything else in the garden is asleep. The flowers stand in stark contrast to the deep-green foliage that stay on the shrub year-round.Use Stephanie Golden as a foundation shrub to soften your hardscape or as a flowering hedge to draw the eye along the garden. It works in sun or dappled shade and can be pruned to your liking. The blossoms make great cut flowers and are always wonderful additions to holiday decorations. Cut branches with greenery for vases or float several blooms in a low bowl for a centerpiece.Camellias are easy to grow in their zone and will give decades of floral goodness.

Frilly white flowers brighten the dark days of winter! We don’t want to bring back bad memories of high school English essays, but we want to point out that you’ve encountered Snow On The Mountain Camellia (Camellia sasanqua ‘Mine-No-Yuki’ – also known as Camellia sasanqua ‘White Doves’) before, even if you don’t remember it. Where, you ask? Fair question. In chapter 11 of that great American classic “To Kill a Mockingbird”, Scout’s brother Jem reaches the end of his rope with the old woman up the street who continually taunts them because their father, Atticus, is defending a black man on trial. In a fit of rage he takes his sister’s baton, runs through the old ladies yard and he “did not begin to calm down until he had cut the tops off every camellia bush Mrs. Dubose owned.” Those camellias she owned? Snow On The Mountain.These gorgeous, super-frilly, pure-white flowers bloom on evergreen plants that grow up to a mature height of 25 feet. The flowers are awesome cutting flowers and make wonderful holiday decorations when they are floated in a bowl of water. The shrubs are easy-care in dappled shade and acid soil. They are beloved southern garden shrubs and have definitely stood the test of time in southern gardens.If Snow On The Mountain Camellia is good enough for Harper Lee, you can be sure it will be great in your own garden. Order yours today! * Easy care* Beautiful snow-white flowers in the winter* Borders and beds* Good in large containers* Tall hedge plant.
Luscious hot pink flowers in the middle of winter! Ah, sasanqua camellias are the unheralded aristocrats of the garden world. They are in that rare class of flowers that bloom in the darkest days of winter, and they bloom with complete abandon. (Unfortunately they shudder at a truly cold winter, so they reserve their unparalleled beauty for mild winter gardens.) If you are lucky enough to live where they love, though, Shishi Gashira Camellia (Camellia sasanqua ‘Shishi Gashira’)will reward you with eye-candy from Halloween through Christmas (at least).This evergreen is a wider than it is tall, so it fills in your bare spaces quickly and well. Shishi Gashira is covered in a profusion of semi-double flowers in an eye-catching hot pink with a sunny yellow central eye – the perfect foil for gray winter days. The flowers are classic cutting flowers and a dozen blooms floated in a large bowl of water makes and unforgettable centerpiece for the holidays.This excellent shrub is so versatile, too. Use it in foundation plantings where its evergreen leaves will hide unsightly edges. It grows low enough to tuck under windows without blocking the view. Mass several of them under tall trees or at the edge of the property to draw the eye. Use them singly as a natural sculpture by the pool.Shishi Gashira has a unique weeping form that just adds to the romantic quality of this beautiful shrub. Their branches will trail and off of rocks and walls and over the edges of large containers.This will truly be a welcome addition to our garden, so order your Shishi Gashira Camellia today! * Easy care* Beautiful double hot pink flowers in the winter* Perfectly sized for modern gardens * Weeping foliage* Borders and beds* Great in containers* Low enough for under windows.
Christmas Blooms for Your Home Yuletide Camellia, Camellia sasanqua ‘Yuletide’, is an evergreen shrub with ornamental features. These would look stunning as a hedge, foundation plant or even planted in containers for your front porch. As you watch your landscape fade and settle in for winter, your Yuletide Camillia will just be getting started. Three-inch blooms of breathtaking scarlet will appear in fall, their single blossoms cradling bright sunny stamens. Glossy, dark green foliage will fill out your shrub, the perfect showcase for the showy blossoms (and an evergreen presence in your yard throughout the year). The gorgeous flowers will persist late into the year, a cherry welcome to your winter days. The flowers are long-lasting (as are the branches), should you decide to cut a few for an indoor display. Your Yuletide Camellia will grow up to 10 feet in height with an equal spread. It has an upright, pyramidal shape, and a branching habit with a compact nature. Yuletide Camellia is a low maintenance shrub that grows naturally beautiful, but it won’t mind a bit of shaping if you’d prefer to tailor it a little. Yuletide’s blooms are lovely, even in decline. As the flowers fade, the pretty red petals gently flutter to the ground to form a soft, bright sprinkling of red color below the glossy green foliage. It’s an additional bit of color to add to this already lovely shrub. Yuletide Camillia is a gift you can give yourself this year. Just as its name implies, it is a particularly prolific bloomer in December so it’s the perfect Christmas gift for yourself–and your yard this year! * Red flowers * Evergreen * Cold hardy * Works will in containers * Wonderful cut flower * Deer resistant.
