Camellia sasanqua 'Yuletide'
Now that we live in Houston, I can finally grow camellias. I may have to forgo many of the cottage perennials we loved in our Pennsylvania garden, but at least there's some compensation in the form of semitropical flings and southern aristocratic shrubs. And camellia is certainly one of those. A broadleaf evergreen in the tea family, sasanqua camellia produces two-to-four-inch flowers on a neat plant. The 'Yuletide' variety has single red flowers with yellow stamens, which appear in late fall or early winter.
