I took the photo for Tama Electric Camellia this morning, February 7, 2019. I love to enter the greenhouse in the spring to find something new. Many of the Camellias are blooming now, this one is special to me.

Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting any Camellia as they prefer fall planting with less watering than you might think. In NC our soil is clay so we prefer to use pine bark soil conditioner when planting Camellia, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, and Azalea.
