Product Details

The Red Yuletide Camelia is a spectacular shrub that is perfect for the holidays. It hard to pass up a plant with such a beautiful name and it’s rare to find one that blooms during the colder seasons. The Yuletide is an award winning favorite of many. Blooming from September to December, this shrub will provide beautiful blooms when most plants do not. Extremely drought tolerant and, once established, the Yuletide can withstand any conditions.

This Red Camellia is an evergreen shrub that serves well as a property barrier, foundation planting, or even as an accent in your landscaping. Growing to an impressive height of 8-10 ft. and width of 6-9 ft. it allows privacy where it is needed most. Bearing an abundance of red flowers with bright yellow stamens, this shrub will add color to an otherwise bare landscape during the cooler seasons.

Virtually maintenance free, with little care you can enjoy blooms year after year with the Yuletide Camellia. Plant your Camellia in acidic soil and ensure that it is planted partial shade to partial sun conditions with filtered sunlight. Too much sunlight will burn up your camellia. Keep your shrub watered regularly upon first planted until established. Once established, reduce watering, fertilize, and prune after flowers have bloomed.

Planting & Care

How to Plant & Care for Your new Red Yuletide Camellia

Be sure to choose an appropriate location for your Camellia.

Planting Time: Plant any time of the year taking care to avoid temperature extremes on either end of the spectrum. 

Sun: Part sun to part shade

Soil: Fertile, acidic, moist, but well drained

Watering: When newly planted, water deeply at least twice weekly.  Camellias prefer a moist soil, but water requirements do diminish as the plant ages and is able to shade its own roots. 

Mulching: Mulching is a great way to keep the roots cool, soil moist, and add nutrients to the soil.

Pruning:  Prune after flowering if needed to remove dead and dying branches or correct aesthetic or structural issues

 

Planting Instructions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 2 - 3 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.
