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.

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

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.
