Camellias- ‘Winter Roses’ in my garden….

February 15, 2017
Assortment of Camellia's from my garden.

Assortment of Camellia’s from my garden.


I’ve always  been amazed with the delicate beauty of camellias. Their flowers, in my opinion, often resemble those of a rose. Of course, everyone knows I love roses, so during the winter months my camellias become my ‘winter roses’.

My camellia collection consists of a dozen- 9 Camellia japonicas and 3 Camellia sasanquas.   Of course, by choosing both species I can have the best of both worlds with blooms in the fall, winter and spring.

Presently, I am enjoying the glorious splendor of the Camellia japonica’s in my garden…


Nuccio's bella rosa

Camellia japonica ‘Nuccio’s bella rosa’

Nuccio’s bella rosa is one of my favorites. I planted two medium sized bushes a few years ago and it never disappoints. Beautiful formal, 4 inch red blooms almost all winter. Gorgeous!

Another favorite that I’ve grown for years is ‘Nuccio’s Gem‘. I must say what a gem it is with its sparkling white formal winter blooms. Mine is 6 feet tall and situated in a protected area in my garden.

‘Delores Edwards’

 This X williamsii hybrid grows well in my Zone 7b hot and humid climate. ‘Delores Edwards‘ has beautiful large semi double orchid pink flowers. Lovely.

I am glad you are enjoying your camellias too. All Nuccio’s varieties are so beautiful, thank you for the lovely pictures.

Its no wonder that you call your Camellias your Winter roses. They are indeed very beautiful. Its April before they start to bloom in my part of the world, not many of them are successful except that is for Williamsii Donation which is outstanding.

The recent freezes were not kind to my Camellias. Fortunately there are plenty of tight buds left to open. I hope yours fared well.

February 22, 2013 at 9:43 am

What beautiful flowers. I’ve been thinking of adding more in my garden. You’ve just helped me make up my mind. :0)

February 22, 2013 at 6:10 pm

I breathed a sigh of pleasure viewing this post! I love Camellias, too, and I did a recent post about them: Dreaming of Camellias. I’m too far north, but I’m thinking about potting one and keeping it on a protected back porch that stays cold but not too cold. Your photos are beautiful!

February 25, 2013 at 8:51 pm

Unfortunately Camellias are not hardy enough for my zone 5 garden, but I truly love them. I especially like the pure crisp white blooms.
