Join Us!

The International Camellia Society is a charity with members around the world who all share a love of everything 'Camellia'.

Joining is not just about education, science, new varieties, preservation of old varieties, it's about friendships as well.

Why join?

We are a truly international community and our members frequently find that ICS visitors from outside their own area become lifelong friends, even if they're only able to meet at our bi-annual congress!

Each year, you'll receive a 100+ page journal, with masses of interesting articles about camellias, some scientific, some basic and some just interesting.
