    Join us to celebrate 200 years of Camellias in Australia.  Two hundred years ago in 1823, Charles Frazer, the first superintendent of Sydney’s Botanic Gardens, supervised the first planting of a recorded collection of camellias in New South Wales, under the Vice-Regal patronage of Lady Brisbane, wife of Governor Brisbane.  Soon camellias would captivate the colonial pioneers and begin an important chapter in Australian horticulture.  Stephen Utick, Visiting Curator Theaceae will be hosting an afternoon of talks looking at Camellias and their incredible contribution to our gardens and culture over the decades, from colonial days till the present. Suitable for history buffs and plant enthusiasts!
