blue toned camellia

skyblueskies(8b-9)April 12, 2003

Last year, I had a burgundy camellia bloom with stong blues at the petal base of many of the flowers. This year, I saw hints of that, but not as strongly. Can anyone explain why this might happen and how I can encourage it?

Thanks for you help.

Hi
Can't explain it but check the acidity level of the soil.
High acid levels will cause "Bluish "strains of roses to be much bluer.
