Answer: Camellias do best in filtered shade, such as under tall pine trees; however, I have had good luck with mine in a less shaded area. This year, we had a tremendous amount of bloom. I live in the Jacksonville area and I have 4 plants.<br><br>Two hours of sun a day may be the reason they are spindly. If you have an area such as suggested above, I would move them. Continue fertilizing with azalea/camellia type fertilizer immediately after they bloom. Camelllias do not require much pruning, but if some pruning is needed, do it at this time. Keep moist, but not wet.<br><br>Good luck.
