Camellia's in CT
I was wondering if there were any Forum members who have had success growing camellias in Connecticut? I am in Southern CT, Zone 6, but am 13 miles north (inland) of the Long Island Sound. This past winter I recorded -2F as our lowest low. Prior winters made it down to +5F - +10F. I do understand there have been new camellias instroduced (I think I read Ackerman). I read the message post from SW Michigan and Toronto but was hoping to get info from a CT grower. I have areas that provide mostly sunny, part sun and shady areas under towering oaks.
Thanks for any information you can provide.
