I have a camellia tree (Camellia E.G.Waterhouse) that about 2 years ago sent us this long very tall branch from what looked like the middle of it. However now that it has a bit more girth I see it has actually come from the side base. Its leaves are a very similar shape but slightly narrower. The bushy part of the camellia has flower buds coming but this top part has no flowers and is much more open with its branch structure up the trunk.
Is there some reason for this type of camellia to shoot like that from the base i.e. underground? I could send photos if that would help .

Thanks,
Wendy

Hi Wendy, Most Camellias are cutting grown so rootstock growth is unlikely, I am guessing that at the nursery a little seedling (from cross pollinating) has sprung up and has taken of. It would be best to cut off at ground level and put some Cut n paste or similar on the cut to prevent it from re-growing. Thanks the Palmers Team
