Camellias in China

Close your eyes for a moment and allow yourself to fly over the hills and dales to the medieval kingdom of Dali, China, a prosperous silk road city in southwest China which is now Yunnan province. In your mind's eye, picture three pagodas watching over the city's Buddhist practices and then raise your sights a bit to see the Shibaoshan mountain with grottoes and carvings. Let you mind travel forward to the present day to listen to the presentation of Don Bergamini, camellia expert, on his recent trip to Dali for the international Camellia Congress. Don is an excellent photographer and his photos will capture the city, the ancient sites, and the camellia heritage of China. Don has been growing, hybridizing and exhibiting camellias for the last forty years and he is recognized all over the world for his camellia expertise.

Coffee at 6:30 and program starts at 7:00. Free admission!
