Camellia flowers grow on underside of bush, upside down usually.T he camellia bush I have is about 16 years old. It is about 4 ft tall. The beautiful flowers cannot be seen because they bloom under the branches upside down. I don't see this problem addressed. I don't feed it much but will if I know what to do.

Your branches may be weak and not hold up the flowers well.
Pruning can help strengthen the plant and remove weak branches.
