Camellias The history, the stories and the people

March 16, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Camelias

$25 General Admission, $20 Members

 

 

 

Join Brie Arthur as she presents a photographic tale of one of the most cherished Southern heritage plants, the camellia.  Discover the historic “lure of caffeine” and how global trading routes, politics and war spread camellias from Asia to Europe and the new America. This special State Botanical Garden of Georgia’s 50th Anniversary event includes coffee, tea from camellias grown in South Carolina, and delicious treats. Seating is limited in the Garden Club of Georgia’s elegant Terrace Room.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Garden and the Garden Club of Georgia.

A selection of Brie’s camellias and the Southern flame azalea, the State Botanical Garden’s signature anniversary plant, will be for sale.
