You don't receive the kind of heat we have here in San Diego in winter (which is isn't good for Camellia).

26 Jan, 2018


Lol no we don't get your kind of heat Andy the frost we get can do as much damage as your heat they say here never put a Camelia east facing.

Camellia trees or shrubs here have to be planted on the north or north-east side of home or businesses or they will most certainly burn up.
