  • Camellias, the "Winter Rose," Offer Color & Charm - Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden
    camellia plants and more than 1 200 different camellia types which have earned prestigious designations as an Official North American Collection and a Garden of Excellence Camellias are part of this garden s history and the history of Norfolk said O Neill Frederic Heutte the Norfolk Botanical Garden s first director was one of the first to grow camellias outdoors in this area Staff continues expanding the collection through the addition of species camellias dwarf and groundcover forms as well as ancient varieties cultivated before 1900 The ancient strains are hardier and worthy of preservation yet today s hybridized varieties flaunt flashier and brighter blooms with sizes varying from shrubs to trees Each bloom is lovely seemingly eager for a second glance whether single or double blossomed peony or rose shaped brilliant fuchsia or cotton candy pink Creamy white cultivars also sport wintry appeal and intriguing names like Frost Princess Snow Flurry Polar Ice and Winter s Hope Most camellia blooms boast a bright yellow cluster of stamens that are quite striking amid the plant s glossy evergreen leaves Caption The camellia originated in Asia represented by this ornamental stone lantern in the Asian Valley at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden Photo by Don Williamson Some camellias postpone their floral show until spring so O Neil suggests knowing each variety s blooming schedule prior to planting He also hints at expanded offerings such as the Camellia azalea that blooms during summer and bright yellow tropical camellias C nitidissima and others that are being used in breeding to develop more cold hardy yellow camellias In addition to beauty camellias are appreciated for their tolerance to shady areas even beneath trees They must be well watered the first couple years following planting but typically become more drought tolerant once established O Neil said
