About Us

The Coushatta Camellia Society was founded in 1969 by W. L. Gilmore, a long-standing Conroe nurseryman, and Emil Carroll a local physician to "promote interest in and exchange information on growing and exhibiting camellias, and to support education and research related to camellias" .  Some forty years later we are still committed to that purpose.

We meet at 2:30 p.m. on the second Sunday of each month from September through April in the Parlor at First Christian Church, 3500 N. Loop 336 W., Conroe.

Meetings, which are all open to the public, begin with a short social; snacks and coffee etc.  We then hear a dissertation from our usually very interesting guest speaker which could be on any gardening topic, not always specific to the camellia.  After that we get down to the society business at hand.  We try to end our meetings between 4:30 and 5:00.

Come check us out!   Bring a friend along too.  You'll be glad you did.
