The Tidewater Camellia Club Fall Display Show and Plant Sale, Saturday, Nov. 17, from noon to 4 p.m. at the New Hanover County Arboretum, is free to the public.

The Camellia Club Show chairperson, Diane Clark, said that the sale proceeds go back into the seasonal shows the club has, as well as community service projects for the public. 

“We do community service projects associated with camellias,” she said. “For example, we’ve donated plants to the Habitat for Humanity Fall Festival.”

Along with the show and sale, Clark said there would be educational workshops and videos to help guests understand this unique species of flower. 

“There are 10,000 different blooms. Camellias can look like different things,” she said. “Some can look like a rose or a tulip … and bloom when other things do not.”

Clark suggested that anyone who misses the fall show should visit the Arboretum’s camellia walk. Visit www.tidewatercamelliaclub.org
