The Judge Arthur Solomon Camellia Trail is located at the Bamboo Farm & Coastal Gardens in Savannah, Georgia, USA. This camellia trail is a project of the Southeastern Camellia Society in cooperation with the University of Georgia and the Friends of Coastal Gardens. The Trail was begun in 2002 in an effort to create a public garden that featured camellias in the Savannah area.
Presently, we have over 1000 camellias growing on the Judge Arthur Solomon Camellia Trail along with many Encore Azaleas and Souther Living Plant Collection plants as well. This Camellia Trail is one of the most unique camellia experiences in America. It is designed to not only inspire appreciation and preservation of the Genus Camellia, but also to provide a working outdoor classroom where gardeners can learn about camellias and horticulture while helping to build and maintain this garden for generations to come.
This camellia lover’s dream is complete with 1000′s of feet of Handicap Accessible Paver Paths making it possible for young and old to explore the entire Camellia Trail. Another unique feature of The Trail is the use of drip irrigation throughout the entire garden. This feature not only provides adequate irrigation to the plants, but also uses a valuable resource responsibly.
Much has been done already, and still much remains to be done. Won’t you help us complete this project by volunteering and donating to this very worthwhile project?
