Camellia sasanqua ‘Yuletide’

It’s been way too long since I last wrote a blog post, so I’m going to ease back into it slowly. With this:

Camellia sasanqua ‘Yuletide’

I was at the Nursery looking for who knows what when I spied this amazing specimen. It’s Camellia sasanqua ‘Yuletide’, a fall-winter blooming camellia, which, like most camellias, really likes our climate.

C. sasanqua ‘Yuletide’ detail–wow, look at the number of buds on this beauty!

So I want someone to buy it so I can see it in a garden. PLEASE!

I don’t have room for it in my own garden–it wants at least a little shade, but it also should be in a spot where it will have room to grow–it’s already started as an espalier, so optimally it would be a wall or fence. And then of course, someone who is willing to continue training it either on a larger trellis or along wires. This shrub is easy to espalier with its pliable and outward bending branches.

If you live in the Vancouver area and you want this, let me know. I’ll get it, plant it, even look after it for you if you like (for a nominal fee of course!).
