The Araluen Botanic Park Foundation (ABPF) has been accepted into the elite International Camellia Society (ICS), under its Garden of Excellence Program.
The accolade was decided at the ICS World Congress, which was held last week in Chuxiong, China.
The Garden of Excellence Program was launched in 2001 to recognise Camellia gardens of Excellence. Araluen now joins 17 previously recognised gardens worldwide. To qualify, gardens must meet a strict set of guidelines developed by the ICS, which ABPF achieved thanks to its 350 beautifully positioned Camellias.
Camellias are evergreen and long-lived, brightening gardens with their blooms from simple single-form flowers to formal doubles.  They originate from subtropical regions in China, Japan and neighbouring countries.
