In the 1990s a camillia flower blight arrived in New Zealand. As its name suggests, camellia flower (or petal) blight damages only the flowers of camellias. It has become established throughout the country.
Initially just spots, the camellia flower blight infection, Ciborinia camelliae, spreads over the petals turning the entire flower brown.
There is currently no effective way of controlling camellia flower blight. However, some cultural techniques and protective fungicide can help reduce the likelihood of infection.
