camellia“Branches, Blossoms and Buds — Romance of the Winter Garden” — that’s the theme for a garden tour February 13 and 14, 2015, at Filoli, 86 Cañada Road, Woodside, California.

The guided walks go through Filoli’s collection of more than 250 varieties of camellias and are included with paid admission that weekend.

A country estate dating to the early 20th century, Filoli welcomes the public to its 654–acre property, including the 36,000 square foot Georgian country house and 16–acre English Renaissance garden. Filoli is located about 30 miles south of San Francisco, just south of the junction of Highways 92 and 280.
