Answer: Your camellia may be as adapted to a shady spot as any "showy" plant will be. I have seen camellia bloom in quite a bit of shade. One suggestion would be to trim some limbs on any tree(s) that might be reducing its light. The effect would be to brighten the shade. Azaleas and hydrangeas are other options to consider for that spot.
Thanks for the question!
