Poorly camilia

I have several camilias, they all flowered this spring and look lovely and healthy. Except this one....

  • It has pale, discoloured, raggedy leaves with holes in and it didn't flower this year. 
    Can anyone identify what's wrong and whether it can be saved?

    I'm not surprised this poor camelia didn't flower...looks terrible. The structure of the plant looks very messy, but it looks like a very mature specimen. Air circulation must be limited in the centre... I'd guess a fungal condition...but I've only grown them intermittently. Let's see what anyone with more experience will have to say.

    These respond very well to being sawed down to the ground. You could try that, it would get rid of all the chewed, mouldy cross over branches.
