Hi, I have a camelia plant appx 4 years old that never flowers, but has very healthy leaves. Why is it not flowering and what can i do to get flowers?



What are you feeding it with? Where is it planted - if outside, is it in an east facing position?

Are you pruning it right after it blooms? Or in late summer when the flower buds should be forming?
Is it forming flower buds, but they are turning brown before they open? If so, it may need more acid in the soil, and/or better drainage.
