Camellias’ showy winter blooms cheer even the dreariest of days. We’re sharing these special plants with you in our second-annual online camellia sale! February 18 through March 14, shop a selection of camellia plants on our website. These 3-gallon, classic heirloom plants are proven performers in the southern garden.
Pick Up Information
Thank you for supporting Oakland’s gardens with your online Camellia Sale purchase! Please read ALL of the following information as this sale pick-up is different from past sales.
The pickup date for your order is Saturday, March 19 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. We will set up a one-way, drive-through pick-up location by the greenhouse. Just follow the signs, drive up, and load your camellias. Staff and volunteers will be there with your plants ready to go. Please come back on April 9 for our annual Spring Plant Sale and the full shopping experience.
Other Important Info for pickup:
- Drive in and follow signs. If you prefer, park outside the main gate in the gravel lot and walk in, but bring a wagon or cart for your new three-gallon plants. They get heavy!
- Make sure to have your own paper, cloth, or plastic liner set in place to protect your car’s carpet and upholstery. We do not supply this for you.
- Please stay in your car and show us your sales receipt, or give us your last name along with the Camellia varieties you purchased. We will direct you to where your order is.
Missed the pickup? Here’s an alternative:
If you could not make the Camellia Sale pickup on March 19, you can still pick up your order at Oakland through Sunday, March 27. From 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. daily, orders will be placed in front of Oakland’s greenhouse. Orders are in alphabetical order by last name. Each plant is tagged with the customer’s name, and a copy of the invoice is attached. To get to the greenhouse, drive into the cemetery and continue straight until turning left at the third road on the left at the bottom of the hill. The greenhouse is on that road, so follow it until you see it on your right. Your order will be on the left. Once you’ve loaded, you can continue straight on that road which will loop around and intersect with the main road by the guardhouse. Turn right there, and you will see the main gate where you entered. Any plants that aren’t picked up this week will become property of Historic Oakland Foundation and will be used to beautify the grounds of the cemetery. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. View a map of the cemetery.
