Camellia Didn't Bloom But Azalea Did
I have a Winters Rose camellia planted on the north side of my house. It bloomed the first year, but did not bloom this past spring. The azalea next to it bloomed nicely, however.
Last summer, I applied an organic 20-10-6 fertilizer, and got about 10 inches of leafy growth this spring (but no flowers).
Did my camellia not bloom because of the fertilizer, or did it not bloom because of too much shade? Does a camellia need more sun than an azalea?
The plant itself looks great all year; it would just be nice to know if I am ever going to get flowers again. :-)
