Tower Hill Botanic Garden has one last chance for visitors to take a break from all this wintry weather and enjoy the strong fragrances and colors of flowers as a reminder that spring is right around the corner!
The Massachusetts Camellia Society, the oldest flower society in the U.S., will present its 186th Annual Camellia Show at Tower Hill Botanic Garden on Feb. 28th to March 1st.
Visitors will see hundreds of impeccable flowers at the peak of their display—both on the Camellia trees themselves as part of Tower Hill’s own collection and also in bowls of floating blossoms from private collections. The camellia plant — native to China, Japan, Korea, and Southeast Asia and long prized for its commercial value — is beloved by growers for its exceptional beauty and variety. In New England, it typically produces its magnificent and colorful blooms in cool greenhouses during the depths of winter. Visiting the Camellia Show is a perfect way to spend a winter day amid the subtropical greenery of Tower Hill’s massive indoor conservatory spaces with the backdrop of the dramatic Winter Garden. Enjoy lunch at Twigs Café and peruse the boutique-style Gift Shop. Children can participate in an indoor scavenger hunt and story walk.
