Camellia Plants

camellias

Anonymous added on December 9, 2014 | Answered

My Sweet Jane hybrid camellia seems to be very sick. During the flowering time, it had a mass of buds. Some came out but a lot turned brown and fell off. The leaves are brown halfway from the tip. A lot of these have ultimately fell off. There are some new shoots now but something is eating them. There seems to be a very fine spider web on the plant. Now some of the new shoots are curling at the ends and seem to be also turning brown at the ends. I would love to save this plant. Please help.

It sounds like the plant has a pest of some kind. Neem oil can help with most insect pests. In addition to treating whatever pests may be affecting the plant, it is also a good fungicide. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm
