My Australian pen pal suggested I grow dwarf camellias as they are easy to maintain. Being a
senor citizen I am looking for easy care plants/perrenials as I have gone to planters. I will be planting in ground though in the front of my house. Is this plant good for my zone (4/5 in Milwaukee, WI. )? I am not familiar with camellias at all.

They only survive outside year round to Zone 6. You can bring them in for the winter though, if you would like to grow them.
