AUTUMN ROCKET CAMELLIA
It can be tough to find a plant that blooms during the fall months, but camellias can fill the gap. Fall-blooming camellias bring a splash of color to the autumn landscape when you need it most. These flowering shrubs not only offer beautiful blooms but feature glossy, evergreen leaves that bring a welcome touch of color to your garden.
One of our favorite camellias for fall is Autumn Rocket. This heavy bloomer features semi-double, white blooms with just a hint of pink at the edges. It has an upright growth habit making it ideal for screening and hedging. We also love these in containers to add vertical interest. Try pairing them with pansies for an easy cool weather container. Give camellias the conditions they need, and they’ll reward you! This hardy camellia prefers full sun to shade and a spring fertilization to keep it looking healthy. Prune it back in the spring to ensure dense leaves and numerous flowers. So, if your looking to keep things blooming this autumn... consider Autumn Rocket.
