Description:
Columnar to conical deciduous tree with peeling, red-brown bark. This tree has lance-shaped glossy dark green leaves that turn orange and red in autumn. In midsummer, cup-shaped white flowers with creamy filaments and violet anthers are borne singly or in pairs. In gardens, this tree will reach 25 feet height and spread.

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. Plant seed in containers in a cold frame in autumn or spring. 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.

Harvest Date: Sunday 26 February, 2017
