Highly Variable Sunlight
Hello! I just planted my first Camellias (I am new to gardening this year, so everything is a first, really) and I have a question about extreme variations in sunlight. I planted an "April Tryst" on a fairly well-protected spot on the north side of my property. The spot receives full sun during the height of the summer (about 3-4 months - it will be protected a bit from afternoon sun by an adjoining shrub), mixed sun and shade for another 6 months during the spring and fall, and fairly solid shade in depth of winter 2-3 months (a little late-afternoon dappled sun). I am most concerned about the intense winter shade. Is that too much shade or will it get by on the more ample sun it receives other times of the year? Thanks for your help.
