Can I grow a peony near a camellia?

Flowers and Ornamentals • Plants

Ideally no, as the soil pH differs. Peonies prefer a mostly neutral soil pH between 7 and 7.5, while camellias prefer a slightly acidic soil pH between 5.5 and 6.5.

If you are interested in growing bulbs nearby a camellia, try acid-loving blubs such as daffodils and tulips (soil pH 6.0-7.0), and snowdrops (5.5-7.5). Keep your camellias and bulbs well fed with Yates Thrive Natural Roses & Flowers Organic Based Pelletised Plant Food for luscious growth and prolific flowering.
