General description

An excellent, small to medium-sized, deciduous garden tree, 20 to 25 feet tall and 15 to 20 feet wide. Korean Stewartia is an all-season performer, exhibiting a distinctive branching pattern in winter, camellia-like flowers in summer, and bright yellow/orange/red foliage in autumn.

Plant requirements

The Stewartia prefers to be planted in rich, organic soil with good drainage and full sun.

Maintenance

Stewartia is moderate growing

Practical use

Stewartia bark is spectacular, peeling off and exposing contrasting colors. It could be grown for this characteristic alone. The tree branches close to the ground forming a sinewy pattern not unlike crepe myrtle. It would make a nice patio tree, could accent an entry way, or could be grown as a canopy tree over a sidewalk
