Q.I’ve Had My Tea Camellia For 3 Years And It’s Done Great. Now It’s Looking Very Droopy. Please Advise Me!

I live about 1/2 hour south and east of Raleigh, NC. We have a wooded, sloping yard. I have a lot of camellias, both Japonica and Sasanqua, all doing very well. About 3 years ago I got a Sinensis, and it has grown well and bloomed every year. Now, all of a sudden, it is looking droopy and pitiful!

Droopy leaves on a camellia plant could indicate various issues such as overwatering, underwatering, or environmental stress. Checking the soil moisture often and ensuring proper light levels might help perk them up. Ensure the soil is moist at a depth of about 4 inches, especially when very windy or warm above 85°F.
