    Lovely ! I am in love with Camelias, unfortunately they do not do well in the super hot summers we have.

    Stunning Jeff I have 4 camelias I have never pruned them.

    I adore them.

    How hard do you prune and do you do this after they stop blooming.

    I prune back occasionally since mine are planted under some second story windows. If you prune you do it right after blooming so they can grow out and set new buds. I may have pruned 3-4 times in the 14 years I've lived here.

    Jeff, What's your grow zone? I'm in Maryland, too, but have been afraid to kill Camelias.

    Jeff, never thought that Maryland and Arkansas would be in the same growing zone. We are zoned 7 also here in the part of my state.
