My new camellia bush has brown spots on the leaves. It doesn't look like an insect. These spots showed up on the new leaves as well. What is it, and what can be done about it?

If newly planted, it could be from air pockets in the soil which are making it difficult for the plant to take up water. This can be remedied by tamping down around the base of the plant and flushing with water to fill the air pockets in. Up your watering as well.
It could also be due to a fungus. Treat the plant with fungicide to be safe.
