Camellia bud problem
Two other friends and I live in the same neighborhood and are having problems with the camellia buds not opening on our bushes. The tips of the buds turn brown. Also when the flowers start to open they don't fully open up all the way. My purple dawn camellia flowers changed colors this year and has white stripes running thru the flower petals. I have had this camellia for years and never had this problem with the white stripes in the flower petals. Any help with this problem would be appreciated. I like my purple dawn camellia. The flowers were so pretty on that bush in previous years.
