Considered one of the most sought after ornamental trees in the industry! Truly a year-round tree, this slow grower is an exquisite front-yard specimen!
If you're looking for a stately (but relatively small) tree that looks great year-round, consider this fine Japanese Stewartia, which greets each new season with a fresh display of color and texture. In spring, the large, toothy leaves emerge; in summer, Camellia-like white blooms; in fall, brilliant foliage color changes; and in winter, stunning peeling bark in all shades of orange, brown, and gray!
Easy to grow and very handsome, it's a fine specimen planting or standout for the shrub border.
The Rose-like flowers of creamy white with frilly yellow centers give this plant its species name of "pseudocamellia," and they arise in the middle of summer -- very unusual for any tree, and utterly charming! About 2 to 2½ inches wide, they open in pairs and clusters, really standing out before the large, bright green foliage. The blooms are sweetly fragrant, perfuming the air for many weeks!
Give this tree morning sun and light afternoon shade for best flowering and color. It is not fussy about soil provided the drainage is good, and is quite tolerant of hot, humid weather. Space trees about 15 feet apart
for a solid line of coverage. Zones 5-8.
