can camellias be grown in central Texas?
I don't see many around here, but they are starting to appear in our nurseries. . . I know they like amended soil (and I'm willing to do that) but can they take the heat (or the cold)? Our temps here in Austin range from about 30 to 105 throughout the year--we usually don't get snow, but sometimes an icestorm will come through. If it is possible to grow them here, are there any kinds that would do better than others?
Thanks for any help--I LOVE these plants, and would love to have one.
