One of the most exquisite flowers is the camellia. Recent breeding work has made it possible to grow more of the fall-flowering forms in the Delaware area. Join Linda Eirhart, assistant director and curator of plants, to learn about this breeding work, a camellia’s requirements, and the cultivars available. Enjoy a short walk to see our recent planting of white-flowering cultivars.
