Camellia Cove at the Arboretum
Camellia Cove is located at the Arboretum, 624 Oak Grove Road, Chesapeake, VA 23320. Currently there are 195 plants in Camellia Cove. The majority are Camellia japonicas, followed by Camellia sasanqua, Reticulata hybrids and other hybrids. There are also some Camellia sinensis macrophyllas whose leaves are used in brewing tea. In 2021 Camellia Cove expanded to include an additional 25 camellias.
The November 2021 monthly meeting included a very informative tour of the Camellia Cove. All of the Camellias in the cove have been recently tagged and a new map will be posted in the cove soon. It was a lovely day for a walk in the park.
