Arthur Solomon Camellia Trail

The Coastal Gardens is home to one of the most diverse and unique camellia collections in North America. The collections includes Sasanqua, snow, vernal and common camellias and their hybrids. The Camellia Trail was named after the beloved Arthur Solomon, Chatham County Commissioner for 46 years. He was given the honorary title of “Judge” for his years of service. He was co-founder of the American Camellia Society and was known for beautifying Savannah roadways with live oaks, camellias, azaleas, and palm trees.
