Camellia tours at Middleton open

  • Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Blooming during the depths of winter, the fragile beauty of camellias enhance the Middleton Place Gardens with thousands of blossoms, from pristine white to all shades of red and pink.

Learn about this magnificent plant and thousands more on a Camellia Walk, held every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday beginning Feb. 13 and continuing through March 22.

The camellia-focused guided tours will begin at 11 a.m. at the Garden Market and Nursery and last approximately 90 minutes.

Middleton Place has over 3,500 camellias, many over 220 years old, including one of the four original Michaux plants, which is known at Middleton Place as the “Reine des Fleurs” or “Queen of Flowers.”

Middleton Place is home to dozens of varieties of camellias, some of which were propagated on site. Camellia Walks will focus on a few of these, including the Alba Plena, Alba Superba, Debutante, Donkelaari, Prince Eugene Napoleon, Prof. C.S Sargent, Dr. Tinsley, Lady Clare, Glen 40, and Pink Perfection.

Camellia Walks are free with paid admission to Middleton Place, but reservations are required.
