Plant of the Week – Japanese Stewartia
A beautiful 4 season tree! The Stewartia is not a well known tree in this area, and it should be used more often. It prefers an acidic soil, and a slightly protected area with light shade is best in our climate.
Truly a specimen plant, it requires a prominent place in the landscape. Growing 25-40′ tall and about 15-20′ wide, it has an oval or pyramidal shape.
