Christmas Camellia

Camellias are desirable evergreen shrubs for a garden.  One idea for the garden’s make-over is to install a hedge for privacy and to provide a strong background for highlighting the interior plantings.

Aptly named, this Christmas Camellia (Camellia sasanqua) blooms reliably at Christmas and maintains a bit of color even now despite the cold winter chill.
