New Zealand National Camellia Show:
The 2023 National Show is now over. Congratulations to Rita Verry for her bloom Dr Colin Crisp which was Champion Bloom. 

The attendees at the Show and Convention enjoyed the weekend and visited 4 gardens on Sunday and on Monday visited Pukekura park to view the selection of camellias and other plants there. The show had over 850 blooms entered and a great representation of the varieties that are grown in New Zealand. A number of new varieties may be available in the next few years. Many thanks to the North Taranaki Branch who ran the show and convention.
