Stewartia are beautiful and somewhat unusual small trees. They should be planted more. They have white flowers in summer, fabulous autumn colour and very pretty mottled bark, making tham a 'tree for all seasons'. Their relatively compact size also make them useful for small to medium-sized gardens. Best in sun or mottled shade in moist but well drained soil, neutral to acidic. Very hardy, but protect from strong winds if possible. Maximum height when mature, up to 10 metres.  7.5 litre container, 175-200cms.
