|I do not fully understand the heat zone index. Will this Camellia do well in Cambria Calif.|
|The heat zone index indicates the level of summer heat a plant can endure and still grow well. In your mild southern California climate there in Cambria, you won't need to be concerned about heat zones. Camellias grow well there. In fact, there's a virtual camellia forest growing at Descanso Gardens (for a treat, visit the grounds).
Best wishes with your new camellia!
