Is this camellia a goner?

    Have you tried wiping off the leaves and spraying with a mixture of vinegar and water?

    Don’t. Vinegar will kill plants. Use a liquid dish detergent and water.

    Chances are good that the backs of these Camellia leaves are crowded with Camellia scale. In fact, it’s what’s causing the sooty mold on the leaves. If you can control the scale the chances go waaaay up for this Camellia.
