    Every year my camellia flowers have brown edges, some years worse than others. It is a young plant growing in mostly shade in zone 8. Adding a picture. Can someone please help me identify the problem? If it is some sort of blight, does it have to be treated, or is it just a cosmetic problem that won't spread to other plants. Thanks!

    Try moving it to a more sheltered position.

    Carefully.

    A humid location protected from frost and dry winds.
