Camellia japonica 'Brushfields Yellow'
Camellia  'Brushfields Yellow'

A Jewel in The Garden

The evergreen Camellia ‘Brushfields Yellow’ is a robust and gorgeous shrub that reveals white, peony-shaped flowers with yellow centres during the winter months. The glossy green leaves turn red in the spring.

Camellias are native to Japan and bloom between February and May. They often have a wonderful fragrance and are also evergreen plants. These plants do not grow to be large, which makes them exceptionally well suited to urban gardens, rock gardens, and borders or perfect additions to your patio or balcony.

Planting and flowering details
  • Planting
  • What do I need?
    • A trowel
    • Garden peat and compost
    • Water

    In a pot
    Make a large hole and add some garden peat and compost. Place the Camellia at the proper height, so that the top of the root ball is just below ground level. Fill the planting hole up with soil, press it down firmly and water immediately. The Camellia does not do well when frequently re-planted.

    In the garden
    Camellias prefer a wind-protected area in half-shade. They do fairly well in cold weather. Camellias love moist soil rich in humus that stays cool in summer.
     
    Plant the shrub by making a large hole, loosening the soil and then adding garden peat and compost. Place the Camellia at the proper height, so that the top of the root ball is just below ground level. Fill the planting hole up with soil, press it down firmly and water immediately.

  • Care
  • What do I need?
    • Pruning shears
    • Garden peat, compost and potassium-enriched fertiliser, if possible
    Maintenance
    Water the Camellia a little when it is very dry, preferably with rainwater (if you have a rainwater basin), because it contains less lime. Once a week is plenty during summer, while once a month is enough during winter.

    In March, plant your Camellia in the garden and, if in a pot, sprinkle a layer of compost or soil from the garden around the plant.

    Halfway through the summer you can give the plant some potassium-enriched fertiliser. Water the plant afterwards.

    If it is very cold, it’s a good idea to protect the budding branches by covering them with horticultural fleece.

    Pruning
    Camellias are not fast growers, so you only need to prune them for aesthetics. In May, you can cut back the branches that don’t look very nice. If the Camellia has grown too large, you can prune it dramatically. After it blooms, cut all the branches back to 50 centimetres off the ground. If you do this the shrub will need a year to recover, but once it has, it will thrive like never before.
