Transplanted a Large Camellia - Is It Dead?
In a recent storm one of our large camellias (about 10 feet tall) toppled over, and we had it moved to a different spot on the lawn where the soil is less "soft".
I believe the camellia is a japonica, but I'm not sure.
It's been over 3 weeks, and the leaves have browned and turned brittle. The stems, though, are still green inside so I'm assuming the camellia is in shock.
I have watered and mulched it. The soil beneath the mulch has remained cool and moist.
Should I do any pruning, or should I just leave it alone and watch for stem die-back and then prune those dead stems?
Also, how long might it be before I can tell for sure that the camellia has made it?
Thanks much for any advice!
