If you haven’t trimmed your camellias yet, you’ll want to soon.

Camellias are evergreen shrubs native to Japan and brought to the USA in the 18th century. They’ve since become a staple in Southern gardens and are known for their beautiful winter blooms. Camellias prefer shade or partial shade with protection from afternoon sun, well-drained, acidic soil, and should be watered during drought conditions. They should be pruned after they drop their blooms, but before new spring growth begins. Fertilization is recommended in late winter or early spring depending on your fertilizer of choice.
