Types of Flowering Camellia Shrubs
Several types of camellia shrubs are available for sale, varying widely in size, shape and coloration. Typically, these evergreen shrubs feature blooms in shades ranging from red to pink to white. They also vary in size from 4 to 10 feet tall, with several small varieties available. Bright blooms, evergreen foliage, easy upkeep and love for the sun characterize all cultivars.
Camellias have two major groups:
- Spring Blooming: Slightly larger leaves and flowers and a more formal appearance
- Fall Blooming: Pronounced yellow centers and smaller petals
Why Plant Flowering Camellia Shrubs?
Camellias provide a beautiful year-round display with very little maintenance. With blooms that appear either in the spring or the fall and evergreen foliage, you have color no matter what time of year it is. Even better, you can plant one of each type of camellia for new displays in the spring and fall. Some cultivars even bloom in the early winter, bringing unrivaled color to your landscape.
On top of their beauty, camellias are very utilitarian. They attract pollinators with their blooms, and their evergreen foliage provides coverage for eyesores in your yard no matter what time of year.
Tips for Choosing the Right Variety of Flowering Camellia Shrubs
Before choosing a camellia bush for your home, first determine where you will plant it. Camellias tolerate USDA zones 6 through 10, making them unsuitable for many northern climates. If you live in one of these zones, however, you want to make sure that the area you want to pant your camellia is well-drained and in full or partial sunlight with some amount of coverage.
Beyond these considerations, your choice of a camellia will depend on aesthetics. If your area receives snow, we suggest choosing pink or red fall-blooming camellias to contrast against it.
How to Care for Flowering Camellia Shrubs
Learning how to plant and care for flowering camellia shrubs is quite simple once you get the hang of it. Camellias must live in acidic, well-drained soil that is pre-fertilized to encourage root growth. Also, be sure their sunlight is somehow dispersed, so they don’t get direct sunlight — this can cause them problems down the road. Once planted, water your camellia regularly until it’s developed decent roots.
Once established, flowering camellia shrub care is relatively easy — they require only occasional watering and fertilization. If needed, prune in the early spring before new growth occurs.
