The Reign Of Middleton Place’s “Camellia King” Sidney Charles Frazier
by Anna Miller
Camellia season has commenced at Middleton Place, with some 10,000 plants joining in a pink, red, and white party that continues straight through March. Reigning over the festivities is “King of Camellias” Sidney Charles Frazier. As vice president of horticulture, he’s responsible for the oldest landscaped gardens in America, and within them, one of the first camellias planted outdoors in the country. Heavy as the crown sounds, Frazier is a man of great expertise—he’s spent nearly 50 years working in this historic garden—not to mention great faith.
Meet Sidney at Cocktails and Camellias on February 11.  Get tickets here.
