The Q&A Archives: camellia

Question: I just planted a camellia 2 weeks ago, it looked very healthy and seemed to be doing fine, but now the leaf look wilted and feel dry. It seems to be ok on the watering.Do you know what might be wrong with it

Answer: Newly planted trees and shrubs often go through a stressful period as they adjust to their new locations so what you're seeing is probably just your plant's way of showing its stress. As long as you are watering deeply once each week the roots should establish themselves over the next few months. In the spring you can prune your camellia back to remove any dead or damaged leaves. Best wishes with your new camellia.
