Betty Sheffield Supreme
C. japonica 'Betty Sheffield Supreme'

Wiregrass Camellia Society was founded in April of 2013. It was the outgrowth of a meeting of people in Brooks, Colquitt, and Thomas Counties in Georgia as well as Madison County in Florida. The group at the initial meeting decided to meet on a monthly basis from September through May each year to educate the members about and enjoy the genus Camellia. Our motto is ‘it’s all about camellias’. Members gather monthly to learn about the culture, history, and vagaries of the camellia that we all love. The group meets at the Brooks County Museum and Cultural Center's Camellia Room to enjoy social time, an educational program and business meeting followed by a great pot-luck dinner.

Since inception the group has helped the Brooks County Garden Club with their outstanding Camellia Show (we all believe that it is the best in the region). We sponsored and intend to continue to sponsor the annual Thomasville Camellia Show. This year’s addition is the sponsorship of a fall show in November in Boston, Ga., home of the world famous Boston ½-Marathon.

The wiregrass region of Georgia is blessed with rich soil, mild winters, plentiful rainfall, and great growers. Love camellias? Enjoy camellia people? Wish to know more about the fabulous Camellia? Come join us!
