Q.Why do my red camellia flowers have white areas on the petals this year

It is quite an old camellia bush, and is otherwise healthy. The flowers have not had white areas previously

Actually, flowers can "gray up" just like a human! Over time, the flower colors may fade, or develop white spots, and patches. This is completely normal, and will likely continue to do so.
