January Plant of the Month


There's a reason that Camellias have been our winter Plant of the Month more than once. Just look at 'em! For evergreen shrubs that flower in winter, Camellia can't be beat. Their large, rose-like blooms can be white to red to everything in between. This upright shrub grows around 6' tall and 3' wide, but can also be grown in containers if trimmed regularly. Make sure this plant gets plenty of shade, it can get scorched in our Texas heat during the summer. To keep Camellias happy, acidify the soil on occasion with compost or a liquid acidifier.
