Hi! Can you help me?

I just purchased Southern Living Plant Collection 2.5 Qt. October Magic Pink Perplexion Camellia Shrub with Soft Pink Double Blooms from Home Depot to line the side of my property from a neighbor. Problem is, the plants arrived today and displayed a full sun to part shade tag. I need to plant SOMETHING along the property line under three medium-large trees - almost always dappled in shade/sun only. Will camellias work? Will the camellias I got work? Want to determine before they go in the ground. Appreciate the quick help! :-)

That's the perfect environment for them in So Cal. Unless you live on the coast, it's way too hot to have camellias in full sun even for 2-3 hours. They will burn depending how inland you live.

I agree with Marino. That particular variety you got can tolerate full sun for a few hours in the morning but the blossoms are prone to getting sun burn easily if the environment is very dry and hot. Ideally they will flourish and do best in dappled light all day so you are good to go for planting that variety by those trees that cast dappled light and shade.

I'm learning from experience that the "full sun" recommendation in SoCal should really be adjusted to dappled sun or part shade. So I agree with the advice above!
