Camellia (Camellia spp.)


Along with azaleas, camellias epitomize the Southern garden. Coupled with their lustrous green leaves, they bloom in the fall and winter with showy flowers in a range of colors. They lend a cheerful look to the sometimes bleak winter garden.


Zones 6 to 9; 8 to 15 feet tall and wide; evergreen; moist but well-drained soil; partial to medium shade.
