Happy New Year to you and yours! 2017 is definitely off to a beautiful start with gorgeous clear blue skies after 2016 gave us a nice amount of rain in December.
Did you watch the Rose Parade? Camellias (below) could be called our winter rose and indeed, this highly prized plant has been likened to a rose thanks to several of its flower forms.
Camellia flowers come in single, semi-double, double, rose form, formal double, and other forms. Visit us today to see our great selection in a variety of sizes.
Camellias can be found in placed like Descanso Gardens and the Huntington Library and Gardens. In fact, Descanso Gardens is home to North America’s largest camellia collection and has been designated an International Camellia Garden of Excellence by the International Camellia Society. Camellias at Descanso bloom from early autumn to spring, with the most dazzling floral display in winter, from January through February.
Camellias make stunning hedges when in bloom and provide nice greenery when not.

Camellias can also be grown in containers. Ask Miguel, CJ, or Steve for planting advice. You’ll need the right soil and right-sized container.
