Frost Princess Just Not Growing?
I planted a Frost Princess camellia in a really protected spot fall of 07. I'm not sure it's gotten much bigger since then. It's flowered a bit and I think this year it has three or so buds but I'm just shocked at how slow it's growing. Does this cultivar just take a little while? I'm sure the place is fine as I also have a "April Tryst" nearby and it does fine in the same bed. Is there anything I can do to boost growth next year? I really don't do much to it other than water when its really dry and give it acidic fertilizer. I'm just curious, I have quite a green thumb and this little plant baffles me.
