Camellia Society of the Potomac Valley

The cherry blossoms are peaking around the Tidal Basin, which means it’s also time for the annual CSPV Show and Plant Sale!

This event will be held at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, Maryland on Saturday, March 23.  From 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m, CSPV members and non-members who would like to participate can go to the Auditorium to prepare their blooms and complete entry cards, which will be available on-site.  

Judging will begin at 10:00 and the room will be cleared of everyone except accredited judges and clerks.  The Auditorium will reopen from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. for public viewing … and lots of picture taking.

In the atrium, the Camellia Society will be selling 1- and 3-gallon camellia plants selected for their proven success in our growing zones.  This is a great opportunity to buy healthy spring and fall blooming plants at reduced prices.  CSPV volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions, including how to plant and care for camellias. 

Please join us at Brookside Gardens, even if the weather is frightful!
