plant quick find clear
A small and beautiful tree to appreciate from all angles and in all seasons, the stewartia is remarkably easy to grow. Just provide moist, acidic soil in a location protected by afternoon shade, and enjoy this pest- and disease-free tree.
In midsummer, it's spangled with white, camellia-like flowers. Fall foliage deepens to shades of red, gold, or purple. And the peeling trunk bark reveals a mottled pattern of orange and tan that's always intriguing, especially in winter.
