The Coastal Discovery Museum Camellia Garden at Honey Horn is recognized for its unique collection of 131 historic and exotic camellia plants located along a romantic, meandering pathway under some of the most magnificent oak trees on Hilton Head Island. The combination of the moss laden oaks and the beautiful camellia blooms, gives one a sense of peacefulness and an appreciation of the extraordinary nature of the Lowcountry.

Each camellia plant was selected from thousands of possibilities for its uniqueness and beauty. It is the only public camellia garden on Hilton Head Island. The bloom period starts in November and runs through mid-March.

The Garden was designed and funded by Fred and Donna Manske – long-time benefactors of the Museum. The inspiration for the Garden came when the couple was walking the Honey Horn property back in 2008.
