Camellia buds don't open fully --flower blight?
I have a camellia "Lisa" that has bloomed fine twice before. This time the buds only opened partially and some buds have fallen off. The partially opened blooms are soft and squishy and there are a few brown spots on the outside of the buds. Is this flower blight? It's about two years old.
Right next to the Lisa camellia I have a Camellia Japonica Katie Supreme. I planted it two years ago (3 gal size) and it has never formed buds before this year. This year it formed buds and they finally started to open then it seemed to stop. I haven't seen any brown spots and no buds have dropped.
Any ideas about either problem? Anything I can do in the future to help prevent this?
