Camellia Plants


Anonymous added on January 8, 2014 | Answered

We have a Camellia in a large pot. It is in ericaceous compound and has thrived for many years. It has been fed regularly and was re-potted to a larger pot two years ago. It flowers profusely and has been a delight. Sadly, it has shed all its leaves following the recent snow and low temperatures. This is the first time this has occurred, and it has remained in the same position for the last 7 years. Any suggestions as to cause and solution?

As long as the branches are still living (bend easily rather than breaking off), the plant should bounce back once it warms back up again in spring. Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/tips-for-saving-cold-damaged-plants.htm
