They hate heat! Most are planted on the north sides of buildings. Even then, some get burned in the heat of summer or fall (especially fall, when the hot Santa Ana Winds severely dry out the air and temps can reach more than 110ºF (44ºC) ).

Yes, you if don't have a shady cool spot they're burn up.

There's a very large Camellia japonica a few blocks from where I live. It looks horrible. It's located under a tree on the north side of a house; however, it was severely burned back in late Sept. We had almost 10 hours of over 100ºF (38ºC) with only 8% humidity.
