Is there somthing wrong with my Camellias?
I am completely new to gardening and have a question about my camellias. We moved into a new house in the upstate of SC (zone 7) last summer and there are two large camellia bushes in front of the house. They started blooming beautiful pink flowers about a month and a half ago. I was researching the flowers and learned that I can cut them and arrange them in my house...but when ever I try to touch the flowers, the petals just fall off, or the flower falls off the stem very easily. I went through the bushes today to clean up the fallen and dead petals and realized that there are only 3 blooms left. Is there something wrong with my camellia plant? is this the end of the season for blooms? Is there something I can do to make the blooms stronger for next season? Any advice is definitely appreciated!
