Specific References


Camellia or Camellia Japonica is an evergreen shrub on the teaceaes family that can be grown as a shrub or small tree.

It is sensitive to temperature changes and does not like to be moved from one place to other.

Needs acid soils to thrive and to be protected  from the strong sun.

When the leaves start to become yellow it may be that the plant suffers from a lack of acidity in the soil.

If the flowers fall continuously it may mean an excess of water.

In the case that flowers buds fall down before opening  it might be produced by the a lack of nutrients, or by sudden changes in the temperature.

In addition, too much sun can cause burns on leaves or spots on the flowers.

Camellia needs a fertilezer for acidophilous plants which will  contribute to keep the acidity in the soil.

Can be affected by certain pests garden such as aphids, spider mites or mealybugs.

In the case of being affected by any fungi, check first that there is not high humidity in the soil or that the air is circulating properly through the foliage.

Once these couple of problems have been controlled then combat the fungi applyinga proper fungicide.

There are plenty of varieties of beautiful camellias.

As it is a shrub of slow growth, prune is not highly necessary, just get rid of weak and broken branches.

In the case that a shape prune needs to be carried out lets do it better after flowering.
