Re: camellia is sick

hard to know without seeing it. but, they transpire a lot, especially when it's hot, and if you did not get a fairly large rootball when you transplanted it and if the weather has been warm, it may be dying of thirst--that is, not enough root capacity to take up enough water. if this seems to be the likely diagnosis, you might try pruning it back substantially to reduce its need for water to more closely match its roots' capacity to deliver it.

Hi all-

A couple months ago, I dug up my camellia and moved it under a tree out
front.  Seemed to do OK, got some new growth,etc.  We the last week it has
been looking rather sad, and today clearly is heading down hill rapidly.  It
get's essentially the same exposure as it did originally, just it is under a
different tree.  Any ideas?

(Naturally the plant I put in it's old home has proceeded to drop dead- my
problem gardenia- so now I'm wishing I never moved the camellia)
