Trimming stray shoots

AZtransplant2005(z7 - Raleigh)November 27, 2005

Hi there-

I bought a couple of camellias at the Lowes. There are one or two branches shooting toward the sky on each one. The rest of the plant is compact and full. I am itching to clip off the strays, but am not sure if I am "supposed" to do that. Do camellias shoot up and then branch out?

Thanks!

Leslie

Clip the errant branches back to the nearest outward growing bud or branch. You can do that at any time.
