I want a camellia tree that grows to 7' tall to be planted up on the retaining wall and next to the fence ( to block some view from neighbor). Will I be able to train a 1.5 gallon size that is about 3' tall to 7' height. Or should I buy a taller one?

Camellias are rather slow growing so if you want privacy in a hurry, you'll want to buy a larger camellia. If it's any help, C. sasanqua varieties are faster growing than C. japonica.
