Yellow leaves
Camillia - leaves are turning yellow. I've looked under leaves and see no whitish spots. Planted on West side of house, gets all day sun. Blooms are always tight and hardly open. They are always brown around the edges of petals I water 2's /wk... 30 min each. I live in N.O., LA

Thanks for writing. Camellias do best in a partially shaded spot --- either with a bit of morning sun and afternoon shade or dappled shade all day. It sounds like your plant might be getting too much light. Moving it to a shadier spot may help.
