International Camellia Society

NZ Rhododendron Association


Welcome to the Web Site of the New Zealand Camellia Society.

It is intended to provide information to those who want information on the Camellia, a plant which can be grown throughout New Zealand.

There are 16 branches of the NZ Camellia Society spread throughout New Zealand which offers you:

Fellowship with other keen gardeners
Information on growing and enjoying camellias
Exhibitions and competitions
Garden visits
Local meetings with speakers on a wide range of topics

Three times a year the Society brings you a high quality Camellia Bulletin packed with excellent articles on a wide variety of topics, and illustrated with superb colour photographs. Our articles are abstracted by other journals around the world - and have attracted many overseas members.

Camellia Shows are organised each year culminating in the National Camellia Show and Convention. All members can attend the National Convention.
