Camellias in January

This is the first year that this plant is really nice. Every year I had lots of buds but they fell off the plant.

I read about diseases/bugs on Hometalk and sprayed the plants even though they had many buds & it worked. I love Hometalk.

    Julie, let me tell you the symptoms - the underside of the leaves turned black although there was white & black on top. We used NEEM but you have to be sure to spray the entire plant & both sides of the leaves. Neem is a natural alternative to synthetic

    Congratulations, Sherrie! Your patience (and persistance) has been rewarded. Sadly, I cannot grow camellias at the beach. My soil is much to alkaline for them.

    Sherrie, two types of camellias are seen most often in Florida, the sasanquas and the japonicas. Sasanquas generally do better in Central Florida because they are earlier bloomers and japonicas can often get blasted by heat for us. I'm not enough of a

    I have been wondering what a Camellia look like, as I always see it on the top of the list on fertilizer boxes. They are beautiful! Do they climb? I want to try this.

    No they do not climb. I also have white ones so I'm sure there are other color variations.
