Introducing the stunning Christmas Camellia, also known as the Sasanqua Camellia or Yuletide Camellia. Native to southern Japan, this evergreen shrub boasts glossy green foliage and fragrant, single pink flowers that blossom extremely early in the season, often as early as Christmas. With a long history of cultivation in Japan for practical purposes, the leaves can be used to make tea while the seeds or nuts are used to make tea seed oil, which is edible if refined and said to be as good as olive oil. Various cultivars have been selected, some of which have earned the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. Easy to care for and adaptable to different soils and levels of sunlight, this ornamental plant is perfect for any garden or landscape. Order your seeds today and enjoy the beauty and practical benefits of the Christmas Camellia.
