Camellia petal blight, caused by the fungus Ciborinia camelliae, can be a damaging disease on both common and sasanqua camellia. Disease development is favored by frequent rain showers, high humidity, and mild temperatures during bloom. All cultivars of camellia are equally susceptible to this disease. Camellia petal blight is introduced into landscape plantings on diseased plant material.
