    Can anyone tell me why my Camellia blooms have no fragrance?

    Hello Hannaw. Ken here in the Chicago area.
    Your Camellia Bonanza is a cultivar of Camellia sasanqua. Cultivars
    are usually bred for looks, not fragrance. In the process of achieving
    the look that they wanted, the fragrance was bred right out of the plant.
    It genetically has no fragrance anymore. Sad, isnít it. Take care.

        There are 2 rules for success. Donít plant too deep and donít give them wet feet.
        Good luck and take care.
