During the winter months, we're all looking for ways to add pops of color to our North Carolina landscapes. That's why we're crushing on camellias (of the Japonica variety to be specific). These evergreen shrubs make excellent borders in landscapes, keep green foliage year-round, provide large, stunning blossoms in thousands of shades from whites to pinks to deep reds and even candy-cane stripes during this time of year and they're perfect for cut flower arrangements during the winter and spring months too.
