How Do I Cut Back Overgrown Camellias?

Our camellias stand about 16 ft. and are an ugly mess. I don't know if they should be cut back to the undergrowth or if I should just try thinning them. The came;lias are in front of our house and cover all windows.

Yes, it sounds as if pruning is in order, though I would not cut more than a third of the shrubs in a given year. This article will help you:
