The Board of the VIRGINIA CAMELLIA SOCIETY encourages those of you who are not yet members of the AMERICAN CAMELLIA SOCIETY to join.


Discover the pleasure within the pages of the American Camellia Journal.  You'll want to see our latest stories by experienced camellia growers and friends throughout the United States who share the same love of the camellia evergreen plant.

The website has hundreds of topics, forms, information, or functions with just a click of a link!  Plus every publication that we've ever published since 1946 is available through our website, but you must be a member to see them.  Additional educational videos and other related camellia culture materials are online.  Online shopping, membership renewal, and camellia registration forms continue to be available on our site as well for quick and easy ordering and submission of forms and online payments.

Options are available for both online and hardcopy versions of the Camellia Journal and ACS Yearbooks at very reasonable rates.  A single or joint membership holds the same membership cost of only $30.00 per year.  Electronic memberships (online publications only) are available at only $20.00 a year.
