I think Lyn is right. However, I love my white camelia.
Mine is sheltered from cold winds and receives sun from late morning through to sunset. It flowers well but the spent flowers need to be removed regularly as they spoil the otherwise beautiful climically white scene. camelias should never dry out, esp in late summer.
JJ57 is your camelia placed so it receives early morning sun? Does your soil dry out? Can you plant something to create a more sheltered and dappled shade position?
