Camellia Buds Don’t Open

zina added on October 12, 2015 | Answered

I have had a camellia bush for 8 years, 4 years in Charlotte, NC and I then moved to Myrtle Beach, SC. The result is the same: camellia has buds but they never open (for years).

Bud drop or buds not opening can be due to soil nutrients or even insects.

A soil test can help you determine what may be missing from the planting location.

Neem Oil is a good treatment if you suspect insects. Neem Oil is safe for people, pets and bees.
