The Martha Brooks Camellia Garden
This charming garden features 200 camellias and over 30 different cultivars.
Blooming Camellias and Cherry Blossoms
The camellias bloom in the late fall to early winter, and the garden has a few cherry blossom trees that are nice for photos in the spring. Comfortable, shady benches invite guests to take a secluded break and relax.
Located along the Paseo, the Camellia Garden was designed by Dallas landscape architect Warren Hill Johnson. The Martha Brooks Camellia garden was funded by the employees of Central and South West Corporation and was dedicated to the wife of retired CEO Dick Brooks. This addition to the Arboretum was opened in January 2000.
Restaurant DeGolyer is next to this garden.
