Chattahoochee Valley Camellia Society Sale and Show Returns March 2-3 After Four Year Hiatus

Calling all horticulturists! The Chattahoochee Valley Camellia Society's annual show and sale is back! After a four year hiatus, the show will return the weekend of March 2-3, 2024. This time, the show & sale will be held in the Town Hall at Old Town Columbus located at 8249 Dream Boat Drive, Columbus, GA, 31909.





In the realm of botanical beauty, few flowers can rival the timeless elegance of the camellia. With its lush, evergreen foliage and exquisite, symmetrical blooms, the camellia stands as a symbol of grace and tranquility in gardens around the world. Native to Asia, particularly China and Japan, the camellia has captivated hearts for centuries. Its name honors the Jesuit botanist and missionary, Georg Kamel, who contributed significantly to the understanding of Asian flora in the 18th century. Today, camellias have become a beloved favorite among gardeners and flower enthusiasts alike — including right here in the Chattahoochee Valley!
