Can Camellias grow in Zone 7?
Similarly one may ask, where is the best place to plant a camellia?
In general, camellias grow and bloom better in partial shade, with shelter from hot afternoon sun. This is especially true for young plants, which thrive under the shade of tall trees or when grown on the north side of a house.
Also, are camellias Hardy? Winter hardy Camellias. Cherished for their masses of magnificent flowers and their luxuriant, evergreen foliage, Camellias are, without a doubt, one of the most desirable plants to grow. Until recently, Camellias were the privilege of mild winter regions (USDA zone 7-10).
Hereof, how long do camellias take to grow?
three to five years
Can you plant camellias in winter?
Most of our trees and shrubs bloom in spring and summer, and spring and summer are not ideal times to plant them (although now is a great time to plant them). Camellias, however, bloom during the winter when the weather is chilly and the plants are dormant; they are blooming, but not in active growth.
