Attention Lady Kate go see the Camillia Crusaders

Magnolia Plantation and Gardens Charleston, Sc

Now about fifteen thousand camellias display their graceful beauty from October through April. Ten thousand bloom in the romantic garden and the rest in the newer fifteen-acre garden, created in the early 1900s. Each January, Magnolia hosts its Winter Garden Festival

“We are growing in our garden the same camellia Teddy Roosevelt wore on his lapel, and the camellias that Queen Victoria displayed in her palace—not seedling descendants but actual clones carrying the identical DNA.”
