Watering needs Summer vs. Winter

Roswell, GA

Every Summer my camellias along my entry walk look constantly droopy and I have to water and irrigate them every week. Now it's Winter, they look perfectly happy. I am coming to the conclusion that they have more of a need for water during the hot summer months here in Atlanta and far less of a need for water during the winter. Yes, it does tend to rain more in the winter but that can't account for all of the difference. It must have something to do with the fact that they need less water in the winter and need more water in the summer. Can anyone please validate this conclusion or shed some light on it for me? Thanks.
