History of Camellias in Boston - Lyman Estate Lecture

Saturday, March 02, 2019

New Englanders have grown decorative plants for centuries. Many large estates in the Boston area once featured large glass greenhouses and significant collections of camellia trees.

Discover the rich history of camellia cultivation from the late 1700s through the 1900s at this illustrated lecture by Lyman Estate Greenhouse Manager Lynn Ackerman.

The lecture is in the ballroom at Historic New England's Lyman Estate.

Afterwards, visit the 1804 greenhouses and enjoy our large camellia collection in bloom.
