Mostra Nazionale della Camelia


A new season is beginning...

And with the arrival of spring also arrive the flower shows to kick off the season. One is the annual Mostra Nazionale della Camelia, the National Camelia Show. Over 300 varieties of camelias, both older and new, will be on display. There is a theme each year for the show.

In addition to the camelias on display there is usually a sale of camelia plants, books, and other items with a floral theme. Perhaps tea will be served, a special tea made from the extract of camelia leaves.

Here's the link to the Web site for Camelia in Mostra: www.cameliainmostra.it

I attended the show one year at the beautiful Villa Giulia. Not only were the flowers breathtaking, but there were waiters serving champagne, and the most delightful little appetizers distributed in tiny individual bowls. There were also vendors, selling camelia bushes of various sizes and colors. I couldn't resist buying a bush with white blossoms, which I carefully carried home to Stresa with me on the ferry. It blooms there still, in a large terracotta planter on a lovely terrace.
