Floral Extravaganza
Camellia Show, Flowers, Plants, Gardens
Camellia Show


There are some flowers that don't only bloom in spring but can adapt to all climates and some varieties love a cooler climate. A favourite flower of mine is the camellia, a very hardy flower that can grow in any garden. Some plants have been known to reach over 100 years old. If you want to admire a wide selection of camellias and learn what variety would suit your garden design, then you won't want to miss the Camellia Show on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th July.

This is the NSW Camellia Research Society's 48th Annual CAMELLIA SHOW held at Ravenswood School, Gordon. It will be open 1.30 to 4.30pm Saturday, 10am to 4pm Sunday.

Enjoy a floral extravaganza and see more than 1,000 beautiful specimen blooms on display.

These are just some of the varieties of camellias I love:

Japonicas
