I planted two Camellia sasanqua "Doubly Rainbow" last winter. This year I only got several blooms on one of them and none on the other. Only a few buds developed on the one that bloomed and no buds ever formed on the other one. I'm afraid my soil might be too rich for these guys as I amended it heavily with chicken manure and rice hulls right before I planted them. They are planted on the west facing side of the house but shaded by a very large liquid amber tree planted about 25 feet away. I do not believe there is much root competition from the large tree in this particular spot. The non-blooming one gets slightly more shade and is planted pretty high in the soil. companion plants are heucheras, columbine, foxgloves, penstemon "thorn", rosa californica (no blooms either), and pansies, all doing well. I'm wondering what is going on - could they just be settling in? If its over fertilized, what should i do now? One source said it can take years for a camellia to recover from over fertilization : ( These are a major part of my landscape, no blooms is a major bummer.
