Description

The up to 10cm large flowers of Camellia 'Brushfield Yellow' have a ruff of creamy-yellow petals at the center, giving them a yellow hue, which is very rare with camellias. The larger outer petals are white and give the flowers a truly rose-like appearance. Flowering time is March to April. Good to very good winter hardiness (hardiness zone 8a/8b: -12 °C). Compact, bushy and rather columnar growth habit.

punkt_gruen.gif General information on Japanese Camellia: The evergreen shrubs with the glossy, leathery dark green leaves love semi-shady places and acidic, well drained but moist, humus-rich soil as well as acidic fertilizers (e.g. rhododendron fertilizer). Their thick flower buds are already formed from (late) summer, ripen from about September until flowering in February/March/April at 0 to 10 °C, and open in cool places around 10 °C. If the temperature is too high, the buds will fall off before they open: Japanese Camellias are not houseplants! But they are wonderful winter garden plants, which rightly bear the nickname "Roses of Winter". Or – due to their surprisingly high winter hardiness, depending on the variety – they can be planted out as permanent guests in the garden, protected from the winter sun with a shade net or fleece. When planted in the garden, flowering starts (depending on the weather) a few weeks later than potted Camellia in a conservatory.
