Camellias Spring Blooming
Camellias (Spring Blooming)
At Garden Goods Direct we offer a wonderful selection of evergreen Spring Blooming Camellias that grow and flourish and we feel they should be grown more in our landscapes. The Spring Blooming Camellias are a large group which includes several species including the fairly well known Camellia japonica but also some hybrids including the willamsii series of hybrids. Generally speaking, these are large broad-leaved evergreen shrubs which are well adapted to our climate here in Maryland as well as areas north of us into zone 6. Of course, areas to our south are perfect for Camellia Japonica. They are tolerant of a variety of conditions in the garden. We find the earlier blooming types are the most rewarding since they start blooming in early February and continue blooming until we have other shrubs steal the show in April and May.
Spring blooming camellias provide floral color in late winter and very early spring when not much else is blooming. Large established plants will bloom over a long period and even carpet the ground with petals. They produce many large flower buds, which open at different times so an extended bloom of 6 or more weeks is common.
Have you considered adding Spring Blooming Camellias to your landscape, but aren’t sure where to start? Let us help.
