Answer: Because camellias are evergreen we expect them to retain their leaves but the truth is that the oldest, usually those towards the center of the plant, do drop off after a couple of years. They are usually replaced by the plant. To encourage new growth in the center of the branches and at the ends, you can trim your camellia back a little. Wait until the flowering has stopped and then prune the branches back. This will encourage healthy new growth and a thick and dense canopy. Enjoy your camellia!
