"Camellias belong in the home landscape ...

"Camellias belong in the home landscape because they are attractive, evergreen shrubs that bloom in what most people consider the off season of fall and winter, some in spring," says Brian O'Neil, director of horticulture at Norfolk Botanical Garden in Norfolk, Va., www.norfolkbotanicalgarden.org .
This time of year, garden staff offer guided walks through its camellia collection, which includes two major camellia species - the fall-flowering C. sasanqua and late-winter and early-spring blooming C. japonica - and the different types of flowers, such as double, anemone form, single, etc. Camellias are cold hardy in zones 7-9, and often to Zone 6b.
The botanical has more than 1,700 camellia plants in more than 1,100 different cultivars and species, including the tea camellia, Camellia sinensis, which is among the first camellias to bloom in October, according to O'Neil. The Hofheimer Camellia Garden was created in 1992 in memory of Alan and Aline Hofheimer, founding members of the Virginia Camellia Society.
"We have one of the largest collections of camellias in the southeastern USA," he says.

"A great many camellias bloom in winter or when you least expect them, depending on the hybrid or species," said Brian O'Neil, director of horticulture at Norfolk Botanical Garden. "They provide color at a time when we need it most." O'Neil speaks from experience, working with his staff to nurture one of the largest camellia collections in the southeastern U.S.

Some camellias postpone their floral show until spring, so O'Neil suggests knowing each variety's blooming schedule prior to planting. He also hints at expanded offerings, such as the Camellia azalea that blooms during summer and bright-yellow tropical camellias, C. nitidissima and others, that are being used in breeding to develop more cold-hardy yellow camellias. In addition to beauty, camellias are appreciated for their tolerance to shady areas, even beneath trees. They must be well watered the first couple years following planting, but typically become more drought-tolerant once established. O'Neil said a tap root formed by seedlings is perhaps an adaptation to obtain water from deeper soil levels.
