Brookhaven Camellia Show is first weekend in February

One of the premier events in the small and dedicated camellia community is the annual Brookhaven Camellia Show.

This year’s show is Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Brookhaven Recreation Department on Highway 51. Blooms can be entered into one of numerous categories beginning at 7:30 a.m.

Prizes for winning blooms will be awarded, and growers and their favorite flowers from all over the southeast will be in attendance.

Is it action-packed? Is it totally metal? No.

But it’s a well-run and much-respected event featuring the only damn flower blooming in the dead of winter. Hit up the show on Saturday.

This camellia is variegated. I learned that from hanging around the Brookhaven Camellia Show.
