A beautiful Camellia with beautiful autumn blooms that I planted about 1 1/2 years ago is mine 😎 It bloomed prolifically in the first year and it was absolutely stunning. Looked great in the spring, summer, and winter. The last blooming season was approaching, and it was full with big buds. The majority of the’s buds having not yet bloomed. I had found it strange that only 2/3 were filled with flowers. I then noticed that many buds hadn’t opened and weren’t being eaten. Brown 😉 So now I notice instead of the green leaves, they are all turning tan to brown and are dry and dead 😉 The whole bush is turning brown! Are there any ideas? Help! Help! We were all amazed by its beauty when it was first planted. It looks as though it’s wining’t make it to next autumn. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks! 
Hey All, my family inherited an entire row of beautiful camellias. House and they have been doing fine for the 10 years we have lived There was one, and then the next thing you know it has gone brown. Other plants, I’m sure, of similar type, seem to be doing well. My name is SCAL and it could be that it was the drought. However, we water it every day and it has started to brown now that it’s colder and more wet. The browning seemed to have happened in an instant. I rubbed the trunk with my fingers and the bark is still green. Any thoughts/recommendations? Thanks!!

Homeguides.sfgate.com The author also mentions that some species of scale insects can infest camellias. Scales cause a camellia’s leaves to wilt, turn yellow Drop. Infestations that are severe can cause slow growth or even death. Leaving the dead brown The leaves should be on the branches. Honeydew is also produced by soft and cushion-like scales. This attracts insects and encourages mould growth. It is important to identify the scale species that are infesting your camellia. This will ensure effective control. For armouredd and sacrificial scales, the body is covered with a plate-like material. This plate is not present on soft scales. They can be smooth or cottony, as well as waxy. A fluted egg sac, which is white and cottony on the body of a cushion-sized insect, can help you identify them. Natural predators can often control armouredd scales. However, severe infestations of armouredd or cottony cushion-scales might be managed with horticultural oils in the late winter and early summer. Soft scale infestations can also be treated Insecticides containing imidacloprid will control armouredd and cottony cushions scales, but not the insecticides. Imidacloprid is known to increase the number of cottony cushions scales by killing off Rodoliacardinalis (vedalia beetle), which is a natural enemy for this scale species. Ioannis from Matola in Mozambique gave us the heads-up. 
Conrad Hilton internationalcamellia.org, a. Because of the complexity of their root systems, large camellias are difficult to transplant. You should prepare the camellias roots in advance. It is important to do this early. Spring you should dig a circular trench around the plant To cut roots roughly to the same size as the plant canopy. Then fill with peat. The plant will be able to withstand the injury with moderate pruning. You can then move it, perhaps wrapping the roots in a net. The camellia should not dry out in preparation or for more than 2 years following transplantation. The root should be kept at a reduced size. System consistent with the canopy you might need After transplanting, gently trim the camellia. You can see that transplanting is difficult and requires expertise.
