Diseased Camellia

Zone 9 | apritchett added on October 9, 2012 | Answered

I have a white loose disease on the underside of the leaves on a Camellia plant. The leaves die and drop off. How do I treat the plant? I have sprayed under the leaves with All Seasons spray oil and Hi Yield Fungicide but the blight returns. What strength of spray should I use?

It sounds like what you have may be woolly aphids, rather than a fungus. Try using a pesticide. This article will explain more about woolly aphids:
