Hi my wife recently purchased some Camellia japonic plants in florida can you give me any advice on planting them. Will they survive the NY weather in the winter or will I have to move them inside?

Camillia japonica is only hardy to USDA zone 7 so it will never want to a freeze or even frost.  We are zone 5 here in the Capital Region.  You’ll have to grow them in containers and move them inside to a sunny, warm place in the house.  Since they are large plants, this will take up a good bit of space.   HERE’S a link to an article that talks about growing them in containers.  I was they were winter hardy here but, if they were, you’d see them everywhere.
