Extension: What’s wrong with my camellia?
leaf gall
The galls are most often seen during the spring flush of new growth. The new shoots and leaves become enlarged, thickened and fleshy and appear abnormal.
This disease is more common on sasanqua varieties of camellias than on Japanese camellia. It’s caused by the fungus Exobasidium camelliae. It also can occur on azaleas and hydrangeas.
