Plant Care & Advice

Camellias are very hardy and resilient plants which can be lightly pruned at virtually any time of the year. However, unless you need to shape up or perhaps clear a pathway there is absolutely no need to prune a camellia. Camellia's can be grown in full sun, partial or even full shade. Dappled shade is perhaps ideal especially for white flowering forms. Camellia's are acid loving ericaceous plants.
