Help with Camelia Japonica (Lily Pons) (PicS)
My camelia was given to me by a dear friend last fall. It survived the winter. It has had buds and still lots of buds on it but they aren't opening. I also noticed 2 or 3 leaves near the bottom have turned yellow. In late Feb or Mar, I gave it about a handful of fertilizer that I give to my rhodies and other acid loving plants. Would that be the problem? We've been getting a lot of rain. It is planted where it gets morning shade and afternoon sun. It is about 3' tall. I have no idea how old it is. The leaves don't seem to be as dark green as they use to. I've added a couple of photos for you to see. That white blob on the bottom pic is a big fat bud. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
