A great tree for a small space, Japanese Stewartia get better each year as they mature into a gracefully-shaped network of branches with exfoliating bark that shows colours of pink, red-grey and brown. The midsummer flowers are white and cup-shaped with yellow-orange centres. (The pseudocamellia species name tells you what flower they resemble.) Leaves are dark green during the growing season, turning in fall to oranges and reds. Grows slowly into a pyramidal shape. A favourite tree among real tree aficionados.
