Dry and brown Yuletide Camellia leaves

14 years ago

Hi, everyone. One of my two Yuletide Camellias has dry, brown leaves and has not flowered ( the other has a profusion of buds and is thriving). I scratched the stem a bit and it's green. Its many leaves have turned very dry, brown and brittle. No buds at all, of course. Both camellias were planted two years ago under the balcony overhang of our north-facing house and did well - until now. Could inadequate water be the problem? When I stuck my finger in the soil, it was mildly moist beneath a very dry surface. We had sprinkler problems in that area, for a while and I'm wondering if this was a contributory factor.

Any feedback welcome. Thanks!
