February 13 – Sidney Frazier of Middleton Place
Celebrating Camellias

Sidney Frazier has dedicated over 40 years to the care of the oldest landscaped gardens in America at Middleton Place. The nucleus of color in the gardens is the camellia, first planted in America near the end of the 18th century in the four corners of Henry Middleton’s parterre overlooking the Ashley River. Sidney’s presentation will cover several aspects of the camellia: its origins in Asia, planting, pruning, propagation, flower forms, diseases and specifics related to the thousands of camellias planted at the André Le Nôtre-inspired formal gardens at Middleton Place.
