I finally decided what to do with those camellia seedlings I collected in Delaware. It was suggested that I pot them and keep them inside. However I read that camellias really do not do well indoors. So, I put them in pots and sunk them in the ground on the northeast corner of the house underneath two mature camellias. This area is somewhat protected from the worst winds and the area is very shady in the winter. I will apply some type of mulching material later.
I have included two pictures plus a zoomed-in version of the second picture. The first is a picture of the two camellias the seedlings will rest under. The camellia on the left is April Snow. It received almost no damage to the leaves last winter. But it failed to bloom. The camellia on the right is April Tryst. It received moderate damage to the ends of the branches all over. It was able to open a couple of puny blooms.
