Foley in Baldwin County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
City of Foley Camellia Walk
Although most camellias do not have a perfume, there are an increasing number of fragrant cultivars available. The camellia plant has been known to live for over 100 years, many of the older plants along the Alabama Gulf Coast have successfully survived hurricanes.
This Camellia Walk was planted by Baldwin County members of the Camellia Club of Mobile, with able assistance from the Foley Parks Department. The Mayor & City of Foley wishes to thank the following for contributing and donating camellia plants for this walk:
Ray and Kay Calloway
Camellia Club Mobile
James & Elaine Smelley
