Day Tripping with the JCRA to … Camellia Forest Nursery
- This event has passed.
Our first day trip of the season is to Camellia Forest Nursery in Chapel Hill where we’ll learn about camellia care, culture, and breeding from one of the experts in the field–David Parks. David has traveled to China and collected species other than the ones with which some of us are familiar. David has a highly esteemed breeding program and is developing some wonderfully colorful and shapely new camellias while also venturing into the wholesale market. Want to know how to make tea? Ask David! You can buy your own tea camellia—and plenty of other camellias and rare plants in his nursery before coming back to Raleigh.
