Can you recommend a sasanqua camellia?
We just had to remove 4 huge elaeagnus that tipped over from heavy rain last month. They were on a slope that's about 5-6 feet high and divides our backyard from the neighbor's that is set higher up.
I would really like to plant Edward Goucher abelia but because they're supposed to be so popular with bees, I don't want to upset the neighbors if they don't like having so many bees in their backyard. I know they like camellias and so wondered if I could put a row of camellias at the top of the hill and then place the abelias lower down on our side. (I'm no good at estimating, but I would think we've got about 8 feet of space to work with--with about 20 feet in width.)
We wouldn't be able to really get up to these camellias once we plant them, so are they even a good candidate for this? We would want something that wouldn't get too huge and could take not great soil and full sun.
Thanks for your help.
