Tryon Palace Presents Twin Rivers Camellia Club in Monthly Garden Series

Twin Rivers Camellia ClubFree lecture has been rescheduled for January 20

Tryon Palace’s January garden lecture series features a presentation from the Twin Rivers Camellia Club. This free lecture will take place in the Cullman Performance Hall at the North Carolina History Center at 10 a.m. Saturday, January 20.

The Twin Rivers Camellia Club will present a lecture on a visit to Massee Lane, the mecca for camellias, and provide information on the various bloom types. Members of the club will also review the “cheat sheet of dos and don’ts” on camellias.

“Camellias are one of those quintessentially Southern plants I love and they don’t get the appreciation they deserve for their role in the winter garden,” said Hadley Cheris, Tryon Palace Gardens and Greenhouse Manager. “This lecture is a great way to introduce people to the amazing beauty camellias can bring into your yard!”

This lecture is a part of a series of monthly garden lectures hosted by Tryon Palace.
