Q.camellia plant

Zone Hawaii | Anonymous added on August 10, 2020 | Answered

I purchased a camellia plant a couple of months ago. It is about 6 inches. In the 2 months it has not grown or formed new leaves. The plant seems healthy, the leaves are green. Is this a slow growing plant? How long until it will start to produce flowers? Thank you

Many deciduous shrubs reach maturity in three years, but camellias are broadleaf evergreens which grow slowly. And a 6 inch plant is very small to start with.
