Japanese Stewartia

Truly a year-round tree, this beauty is an
exquisite front-yard specimen!

Easy to grow and very handsome, it's a fine
specimen planting or standout for the shrub
border.
Japanese stewartia is most
definitely a specimen tree.  
Plant it in a place of honor on
your garden where you can
enjoy it all year long.
Considered one of the most sought after ornamental trees in
the industry! Truly a year-round tree, this slow grower is an
exquisite front-yard specimen!

If you're looking for a stately (but relatively small) tree that looks
great year-round, consider this fine Japanese Stewartia, which greets
each new season with a fresh display of color and texture. In spring,
the large, toothy leaves emerge; in summer, Camellia-like white
blooms; in fall, brilliant foliage color changes; and in winter, stunning
peeling bark in all shades of orange, brown, and gray!
Easy to grow and very handsome, it's a fine specimen
planting or standout for the shrub border.

The Rose-like flowers
of creamy white with frilly yellow centers
give this plant its species name of "pseudocamellia," and they arise in
the middle of summer -- very unusual for any tree, and utterly
charming! About 2 to 2½ inches wide, they open in pairs and
clusters, really standing out before the large, bright green foliage. The
blooms are sweetly fragrant, perfuming the air for many weeks!

When the fall weather arrives, the foliage turns all shades of yellow,
red, and purple -- a spectacular display! It's hard to mourn the
passing of all this color, though, because when the leaves finally drop,
the bark is revealed to be peeling off in big, showy patches of gray,
brown, and orange. Of course, these patches remain year-round, but
they don't stand out until the landscape is bare and needs a jolt of
unusual color and texture!

Japanese Stewartia is a slow-growing, upright tree, and eventually
topping out at 30 feet high and about 18 feet wide. It is dense and
well-branched, with an almost columnar look. It makes a fine
backdrop to Oakleaf Hydrangeas, and is superb as a solitary specimen
in a special place of honor.
