‘Winter’s Interlude’ Camellia is an eye-catching early season bloomer with gorgeous clear pink flowers that appear for 4-6 weeks in November and December for winter interest that cannot be beat. This low maintenance evergreen shrub has attractive dark green leaves and an upright, spreading habit. At home in woodland gardens, or used as a screen or mixed shrub borders. Makes a great specimen plant and also does well in large containers. Provide a sheltered site as flower and leaf buds can be damaged by cold or wind.
Camellias prefer an acidic, humus rich soil with an organic mulch and average moisture. Once well-established they need little additional care and will continue to perform for years to come. Most Camellias do best where they get light shade or morning sun and the light filtered shade of pines seems to be perfect.
