I just transplanted two camellia plants from a nursery in my North Texas garden. They look healthy with lots of buds and a few that have bloomed, but one has several leaves with yellow spotting. Is this a nutrient deficiency?

I would let the camellias get aclimated to your garden. If the problems continue take a sample of the leaves back to the nursery or to your county extension office.

Its too early to tell whehter the spots are from something in your garden, from the stress of transplanting, from something at the nursery, or something at the grower.
Narrow down these variables and check again - probably in the late spring.

Thanks very much. I'll keep watching. Incidentally it's only one of the two with problems. We did have a frost the other night but I covered them. The one with spots gets the most wind and cold.

I hope its something temporary and by spring they will be happy in their new home.

I belong to a newly formed group called the Great Gardens of America Preservation Alliance. One of our functions is to locate and reproduce ancient (pre-1900) camellias and azaleas. My interest is in the camellias. We are also working to catalog those from 1900-1950.

If anyone has these listings, please contact me so I can add it to the inventory.

I would also like more information on the garden found in Greensboro, AL.

Thank you.
