this one's individual flowers have perhaps the most attractive form of any of my fall-bloomers to me. they resemble roses in all stages of development. it is a seedling of 'shishigashira', camellia x hiemalis, and begins flowering in late autumn, then intermittently during milder days of winter. the form of the shrub is low and spreading, somewhat cascading.

RE: 'chansonette'

Very nice Jeff. I had a Chansonette planted out and it died on me. I need to find it again.

How are your Yuletides doing? Mine are blooming pretty well now. I'll try to post a pic. If yours are blooming I'd like to see that too.

RE: 'chansonette'

hi alan,
i don't have a 'yuletide' camellia. i may get one with a gift certificate from a local nursery this year if they are stocking it.

RE: 'chansonette'

I remember having a discussion with someone about Yuletide last year and I thought for sure it was you. Sorry. I have heard from a few people that say they don't care for it. Its kind of surpsrising to hear, as it is a wonderful plant. Admittedly it is slow growing. Still I really like the single red flowers.

Here is a single flower on one of mine about a month ago. I took some shots of the same plant yesterday but haven't uploaded them yet.

Here is a link that might be useful: Yuletide
