The Camellia Garden at Honey Horn on Hilton Head Island recently became part of the American Camellia Garden Trail.
The American Camellia Society sponsors the trail in partnership with 31 other camellia gardens located throughout the nation including the Magnolia Plantation Gardens and Middleton Place in Charleston and Masse Lane Gardens in Georgia. Visitors from around the world seek the beauty of the garden trail during the Camellia blooming season, which runs from November to March.
“Our Camellia Garden was chosen for the trail because of its beautiful setting, its diverse collection of 131 historic and exotic camellia varieties, and the excellent level of interpretation — including a colorful plaque for each plant with a photograph of it in bloom,” said Rex Garniewicz, CEO of the Coastal Discovery Museum.
The Camellia Garden at the Coastal Discovery Museum is the only public camellia garden on Hilton Head Island and is open daily for viewing at no charge. The Coastal Discovery Museum is located at 70 Honey Horn Drive, Hilton Head Island. For more information, go to www.coastaldiscovery.org.
