In honor of Sacramento’s designation as “Camellia Capital of the World,” volunteers from the State Capitol Museum will create and distribute complimentary camellia corsages to State Capitol visitors, California State Legislators, the Governor’s office and Capitol staff. And these are no ordinary flowers -- the camellias will be cut from Capitol Park bushes and trees by the Department of General Services groundskeepers. Camellias have bloomed in Sacramento since the 1850s when pioneers brought and planted seeds from Boston.
