Refer to U.S. National Arboretum website for history/ culture:
http://www.usna.usda.gov/Newintro/camelli1.html

Culture: Prefer moist, well-drained, acid soils with high organic matter content. Mulch should be applied and maintained year round. Camellias benefit from light shade in summer and protection from winter wind. Fertilize minimally to prevent leggy, unattractive growth.
