Why Is My Sasanqua Camellia Having Some Leaves Wither

Camelflower added on November 12, 2012 | Answered

My Sasanqua camellia, espaliered against fence, has some leaves at end of branch withering and lifeless. Those stalks snap off easily. It has sun in that place, so could it be heat, overwatering perhaps? Is it on the way out?

It sounds like a a fungus, perhaps a tip blight of some kind.

Treat the plant with a fungicide and that should clear it up.
