Stewartia pseudocamellia

Japanese Stewartia

These are distinctive trees and shrubs in every season. Their leaves become rich green in spring, and their camellia-like flowers bloom in summer. In autumn their leaves blaze with color. Flaking brownish bark reveals lighter inner bark, so mottled trunks are a mix of orange, gray and reddish-brown. Plant these slow growers only on the West Coast, in the Southeast and in sheltered locations in the mid-Atlantic regions. Shade from hot afternoon sun. Prefer loamy acid soil. Transplant only when young. Mulch to keep soil moist. Use leaf mold or peat moss as soil amendments.
