One of the most beautiful small trees for the landscape, Japanese stewartia has delightful, saucer-shaped, white flowers that sparkle on the branches in midsummer. Its dark green leaves become a riot of saturated oranges and flaming brilliant reds in the autumn. As the tree matures, a beautiful patchwork of pink, red-brown and gray develop on the bark along its trunk and branches. No serious insect or disease problems bother this tree. Its striking branching pattern and decorative bark stand out best against an evergreen backdrop. This is a great tree for small spaces!

This slow growing small tree does best in light to open shade. Provide a location with rich well-drained or sandy soil. It grows best if provided with regular watering during dry weather. Little pruning is needed and heavy pruning can ruin the form of this lovely tree. Consult an expert pruner or take a local class before attempting to prune.

Sparkling white summer flowers with a boss of golden stamens in the center of each. Excellent fall color and peeling bark! Truly an all season specimen.
