Manage pests. Camellia blooms should be picked up from under the bush. This will help prevent the spread of disease.More guides to gardening in the Southeast now

I'd love a camellia bush somewhere in our landscaping for it's pretty winter blooms.

Gardening with Confidence®Luvthehouse, the best time to prune or shape a Camellia is just after the flowers have faded. Camellias do not require pruning, generally, but it's not uncommon to want to give the shrub some shape. You can even prune now while it's in bloom, it won't hurt the plant by doing so, but you will cut off many blooms, and that's no fun. I don't recommend pruning after July since next year's buds are beginning to form, and you will loss those for next year. In summary, you can prune anytime, but the timing will affect the blooms you either have now or expect to have next year. So, best time to prune with this understanding is right after the flowers fade

camellias are an old fashioned favorite and really underused!
