Camellias are one of the first shrubs to flower in the spring. As they flower when temperatures are lower the flowers come out more slowly and in succession. This provides a longer time to enjoy them and makes them great value. As the flowers go over just nip of the flower and your camellia will look perfect for weeks. Some williamsii type hybrids will even drop their flowers automatically saving you the job.
