End of life?
We live in Northern California and have several large camelias that must be more than 50 years old. Last fall two of the camelias on the end seem to have died. No new growth has occurred this spring. They have always flowered, though these two were never as thick as the others. (We don't really prune them much.) What could have caused this? We will plan on cutting them down to the root. Not sure if it would make sense to plant new camelias again in that spot. Is there a life span to camelias?
