Stewartia monodelpha, from Japan, this beautiful snowbell tree, so-called by the profusion of delicate white saucer-shaped flowers which hang in masses from the branched during June and early July, makes a wonderful small tree with delicate deep green leaves during summer and outrageous pinks and reds of autumn colour. This Stewartia also has beautiful peeling bark revealing shades of cinnamon and tan python like scaling on the trunks as it matures.
Like all Stewartias it prefers a sheltered woodland position from full sun to dappled shade, ideally in a deep fertile soil, slightly acidic if possible.
