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.
