Q.Growth On Camellia

Zone BS249LP | hobdenshouse added on May 20, 2020 | Answered

We have a beautiful Camellia ( Anticipation) which has flowered early every year profusely, this year being no different. The flowers are just about finished but we have just found a strange ‘growth’ at the end of one of the branches. It is very nobbly, buff colour with dark spots and what looks like buds at one end. Thinking it was a nest of some kind we cut it in half. However it has an open fleshy centre which is covered with a fine white hair. We have never seen this before. Can you help please ?

Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. I will be unable to identify the issue. What you describe may be a seed pod, but it would be hard to say, without seeing the issue at hand.

In the meantime, here is an article that will help you with their care:
