Established in 1937, our members continue on with the tradition of fostering the education of camellia care, propagation and exhibition for generations.
On the third Tuesday of the month, our Club meetings offer speakers and demonstrations with many opportunities for hands on experiences. The 2020-2021 Camellia season begins in September and goes through April with programs on camellias, gibbing, air-layering, grafting, and bloom harvesting for show winners.
This year we are excited to expand our camellia plant sales to community events, Palafox Market and at the Japanese America Society of NW Florida New Year Celebration located at Wright Place. In December, we will have our 82nd Annual Camellia Show at the UWF Conference Center, where we will offer guided tours of the UWF Camellia Garden with camellia plant sales. We also have scheduled field trips to the Mobile Camellia Show with a tour of Mobile Botanical Gardens, as well as a visit to Agricola, MS for an in-depth grafting experience.
Check out our calendar to see all of our other camellia events, and join us the third Tuesday of the month at the Garden Center, located at 1850 N 9th Avenue in Pensacola, Florida. Social and refreshments begin at 6:30 pm followed by the program at 7:00 pm.
