Camellia enthusiasts are invited to “Camellia Morning at Burden” on Saturday, Feb. 23, from 9 a.m. to noon at LSU AgCenter’s Burden Center in Baton Rouge.

The three-hour event will include a slide presentation, a tour and a pruning and propagation demonstration.

Conducting the program will be camellia expert Art Landry, president emeritus of the American Camellia Society and a former director in the International Camellia Society.

Landry is a charter member and senior adviser to the Baton Rouge Camellia Society.

His professional experience also includes magazine editor for the Gulf Coast Camellia Society and veteran show judge.

The “camellian” currently concentrates on educational programs and maintains 300-400 camellias at his home in Baton Rouge.

Admission is $5, and registration begins at 9 in the Burden Center conference room.

Entrance to Burden is at Essen Lane off Interstate 10 in Baton Rouge.

Program details are available from LSU AgCenter horticulturist Dr. Jeff Kuehny at 225-578-2158 or JKuehny@agcenter.lsu.edu.

Camellia Morning is sponsored by the Burden Horticulture Society in cooperation with the Baton Rouge Camellia Society.

The Burden Horticulture Society is nonprofit organization that provides assistance and fundraising for the planning, development and use of the LSU AgCenter’s Burden Center for the public good, including public gardens, educational activities and outreach programs.
