Camellias. Camellias are a beautiful plant all year long, but fall and winter begins their flowering seasons — they flower at a time when little else is in bloom.Mulch your camellia plants well with a material that will allow air to flow, such as pine needles or pine bark. Avoid flat leaves, as they tend to mat, get soggy and prevent air from reaching the top of the root area. The mulch will serve as a blanket, keeping the soil temperature above 25 degrees Fahrenheit. Camellias should be protected from cold, drying winds. If possible, site young plants in an area with a natural windbreak on the north and northwest sides. If this is not possible, some sort of artificial windbreak may be necessary, such as a wooden fence.If your plants are in containers, group them together in a protected area and mulch deeply around the container. For additional insulation, add pine needles over the top of any plants that may remain unprotected in cold weather.Camellia plants become dormant after three or four days when temperatures reach below 40 degrees. Let them sleep. While they are dormant, the roots are still growing and the buds further develop into blooms.
