Fragrant Camellias

Photo - Linda Ross

Camellias are the shining stars of the sleepy winter garden. 

 

We love them for their evergreen foliage, stunning flowers and lack of pest and disease problems. But why not love them for their fragrance too?

 

Not many camellias are perfumed, but take a look – and a deep breath – at these. 

 

Tall

For a tall option try ‘High Fragrance’.

 

Medium

Medium-height scented beauties include Lutchuensis, ‘Scentuous’ and ‘Koto No Kaori’; 

 

Short

Smaller selections include ‘Spring Mist’ and ‘Sweet Emily Kate’.
