Hi- I' ve two identical camellias and noticed today that all the bud beginnings on one plant have turned brown. Tore one off and it crumbled in my hand. The other plant is in the same pot, placed on the patio next to it. Any ideas what's happened?
Thanks!

looks like frost damage or else the disease called bud blast caused by impeded drainage.

Thank you Michael. I will repot with more drainage and put them in my covered tunnel to see if it improves. I'd hate to loose them, they are one of my little treasures!
