Part One: Camellias
We’ll explore some of the surprisingly interesting facts about Camellias. The American Camellia Society is coming to Charlotte this weekend to judge area growers on their camellia growing efforts, so we’ll take some time to learn a bit about these plants, which, we’re told, can live for 800 years. Learn the history of the camellia and why its export was prevented from the Chinese for centuries.

Part Two: South Carolina ‘Tea Party’ Movement
We’ll catch up on the ongoing controversy brewing between members of the Tea Party Movement and South Carolina Republicans, who, last month were allied, and then less than a week later, were not. We’ll look at how the Tea Party Movement is affecting Republicans in South Carolina and across the country.
