Orangebark Stewartia – Stewartia monadelpha

(20 seeds)

$4.35

Superb, orange-tinged bark, attractive white blooms and magnificent autumn foliage.

As the Stewartia ages, the orange bark begins to flake, making it as attractive when dormant as when in leaf. It is suitable for all upright styles and is a good subject for group planting.

In the Garden

Reaching a maximum of 4m, this tree is a great choice for smaller gardens thanks to its year-round interest. The cup-shaped, white flowers are pretty, but the attractive bark and striking orange to deep-red autumn colours are the primary attractions.

Propagation

Grow your tree in lightly shaded, moist conditions where the soil is acidic. It is relatively slow-growing, has a naturally pyramidal form, and requires little pruning. This Asian species is cold tolerant, but does not tolerate drought or alkaline soils.
