--- 69th Annual Tidewater Camellia Club Winter Show and Camellia Sale was Feb. 23rd---

A great show with 836 camellia blooms and 36 regional and local exhibitors!

Enthusiasts supported the club by purchasing 336 camellias. We apologize to those who stood in line or who came after the plants were sold out in record time. We will try to improve with more plants and more cashiers. Camellia plants are available at The Transplanted Garden and other local suppliers.

Thanks to the many club members who worked diligently to put on the show and to share their knowledge and love of camellias.

Thanks to all who came out to enjoy the show's many other activities:

* Children's Art Show and Activity Corner

* Camellia Plant Education

* Arboretum Camellia Tour: 11:30 am-12:30 pm

Thanks also to the support of the NHC Arboretum, Friends of the Arboretum, and The Ability Garden

WELCOME to the new members who joined the club at the show!
