Comments: The Japanese stewartia can be a small single-trunked tree or a large, multi-trunked shrub. It is somewhat temperamental about where it will grow, requiring a fertile, well drained soil and partial shade for best results. White, camellia-like flowers are produced in late spring through early summer.
