Have you ever wanted that yard of the month sign in your yard, but feel you don’t have enough color to make it pop. Use camellias, a flower that blooms during the down season of late fall early spring. There are multiple ways of using this shrub to brighten your yard and give you that feeling of yard of the month everyday during a dull season of color. Be that person that everyone else is jealous of and bring color to your yard in inventive ways.
- Low-maintenance, shade-loving, small trees or shrubs, camellias throw themselves into spellbinding bloom during the dull days from late fall into early spring, when there’s not much cheer happening in the garden.
- Available in a remarkable range of colors, forms, and sizes, camellias bloom in colors from white or pink to deep red.
- Some flowers are as simple as a wild rose while others as full blown as a peony. While you’ll grow them for the flowers, the evergreen dark glossy leaves look great year round.
“From groundcovers to small trees, camellias can fill many corners of the garden with long-lasting blooms.”
