Camellias to brighten a winter day


Do you enjoy a steaming hot cup of tea on a cold wintery day? It comes to you with thanks to the humble Camellia sinensis, just one of the many species of Camellia. Just like your cup of camellia tea warms your body, the camellia flower brings warmth to your garden, brightening up dark corners when there's not a lot of things flowering.

This winter beauty flowers all through winter into spring, and is an incredibly hardy, low maintenance plant. If you have a shaded spot in your garden and you want to add some colour, a camellia is a perfect choice.
