Brie Arthur returns by popular demand presenting on the exquisite world of camellias. This presentation discusses the fashions, storied histories and characters behind iconic Camellias from around the world. Brie is promoting and growing living pieces of history to connect a new generation to the past. Learn how camellias shaped history from Ancient Asia, into the Renaissance period of Europe and finally into the new world of America during the Antebellum era. Empires were built and wars were waged while the beauty and utility of the camellia was realized.
A former Production Manager at Plant Delights Nursery and Propagator and Grower at Camellia Forest Nursery, Brie will inspire and encourage attendees to appreciate the history and art of Camellias and gardening.
