Yuletide Camellia

Camellia sasanqua 'Yuletide'

Yuletide is a great favorite at Christmastime because of its colors: bright orange-red petals set off by a huge cluster of golden-yellow stamens.                                          Very Striking Specimen.

These simple, single, yet stunning flowers last a long time, often well into spring. Attractive even when past their prime, they turn a subtler, brownish brick-red color. *Deer May Browse*
