The Ocala Camellia Society is a local society, affiliated with the American Camellia Society, whose members meet the first Thursday night of each month at 6:30 p.m., September through March, and presents an annual camellia show during January. The monthly meetings are devoted to various cultural aspects of camellias.

Annual dues are $10 for individuals, $15 for couples, and $50 for corporate sponsors. A monthly newsletter is published prior to each meeting and is included in the price of the annual dues.   We strongly urge all members to simultaneously join the American Camellia Society, and usually offer a free one-gallon camellia plant as a thank you gift.

The annual Ocala Camellia Show is generally held on the fourth Saturday in January each year, and is open to the public on Saturday from 2-5 p.m. and Sunday from 1-4 p.m., in Ocala, Florida. Judging by American Camellia Society Certified Judges begins promptly at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday. Camellia plants will be on sale both days.

If you are a judge or novice judge and would like to judge at future shows, or if you are interested in bringing and entering flowers to be judged and would like for us to send you a show program with rules for entering flowers, please contact Patrick Andrews at 352-595-3365.
