Q.Why Are My Camellias Dying One Branch at a Time?

Zone TN | bcms added on October 4, 2012 | Answered

I planted 3 Camellias about 10 yrs ago, and all grew great for about 7 years, then one started to die one branch at a time. I cut the dead branch off, then another started dying one branch at a time. The first one died completely, and now the second one. During this time, the parts that were not dead continued to bloom. Any ideas what causes this, and what can I do to prevent the third one from dying?

I would recommend treating for a fungus. A general fungicide would be all you would need to do this.
