Hi Marian did you protect it over winter? If not it is possible it has died due to the very bad weather in November & December. Try scraping away a little of the bark with your finger nail and see if it looks green underneath, if it isn't your tree is almost certainly dead. We lost two camellias planted in the ground in protected areas the last winter.

I also lost 2 of mine to the bad weather. It sounds exactly like mine did.
