Why is my camellia dying?
Keeping this in consideration, what's wrong with my camellia?
Several diseases affect camellia plants. The most common include petal blight, canker, leaf gall, root rot and camellia yellow mottle leaf virus. Petal blight affects camellia flowers, causing them to turn brown. This fungal disease generally occurs in spring and is usually due to abundant moisture.
One may also ask, why are my camellia leaves going yellow? Your camellia's leaves may also turn yellow if it is has root rot. Caused by the Phytophtora cinnamomi fungus, root rot turns also stunts the plant's growth. To prevent your camellias from root rot, plant in well-drained soil since the fungus thrives in wet soil.
Additionally, why are all the leaves falling off my camellia?
Falling leaves on camellia. This can be caused by lack of water and, in hot conditions, camellias appreciate shade as well as water. In winter, leaf loss can be caused by frozen compost or soil. If frozen, the soil cannot supply the leaves with water, so they turn brown and leaf loss is likely.
How often do you water a camellia plant?
If flower buds are being formed during water stress, their quality will be affected. Camellias prefer for the soil to remain moist, but not soggy, all the time. When watering, the soil should be wet to a depth of 14" to 18". Maximum water availability is even more important while flowers are opening.
