Description:
This deciduous large shrub or small tree has flaking gray-orange bark and oval green leaves that turn orange, red or gold in fall. In midsummer, white camellia-like flowers with yellow stamens appear. Height 15 feet.

Notes:
Stewartias are trees of such remarkable qualities that it’s surprising they’re not more widely available.

Cultivation:
For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. Scarification may improve germination. Never allow seed to dry out. Warm stratify for 4 months; follow with period of 3 months of cold stratification. Then plant in containers at 20 degrees Celsius for germination. Grow on in moist but well-drained, acidic humusy soil in full sun or light shade.
