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.

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. 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.
