About Living Christmas Tree – Yuletide Camellia

This living Christmas tree with a decorative burlap wrap is a wonderfully festive accent for your holiday decorating. The tree is rooted in soil and shipped with a decorative burlap wrap and red bow.

Use it on patios to frame an entrance or bring it inside to flank your fireplace. Add lights or small decorations to complete the look and compliment your existing decor. After the holidays, take your living Christmas tree and plant it in your landscape.

The Yuletide Camellia is a classic southern camellia, and for good reason! Yuletide is renowned for its numerous medium-sized, single-form bright red blooms with brilliant yellow centers. These blossoms appear from Autumn through early winter and have a knack for transforming the landscape.

The blooms of this shrub contrast beautifully against the dark evergreen leaves. Furthermore, they have a lightly serrated edge with an attractive glossy sheen. This is some of the most consistent foliage you can have in your landscape.

This camellia is very low maintenance and drought tolerant once established over a few growing seasons.

With a growth potential of 8-10′ H x 6-8′ W wide, leave room for this jewel to grow! However, it responds well to trimming and can be kept at the desired size.

This is a perfect choice for a privacy screen, specimen, windbreak, sound dampener for street noise, or even a large container. Use a row of them to line a long driveway for a functional display that will provide hundreds or even thousands of blooms every year.

For an interesting color and texture contrast, try planting with the BananAppeal Small Anise Tree. Alternatively, plant several Dear Dolores Hydrangeas or Big Daddy Hydrangeas in front of a row of Yuletides for a truly southern display.
