Camelias and Daffodils Perfect Together

Camelias were once associated with southeastern gardens where the winters are milder. Recently, advances in hybridization has led to introductions that are more cold tolerant and suitable for NJ landscapes. When thinking about Camelias, plant them as you would a Rhododendron (well drained, shady, acidic soils). These broad leaf evergreens grow 4-10' high depending on the cultivar, offer many color selections, and bloom from February to May. Daffodils are a great companion planting with Camelias as they provide a skirt to the landscape floor. As bulbs, Daffodils are planted in the fall and together with Camilias provide years of stability within the landscape. This blooming pair offers a breathtaking display.
