Stewartia pseudocamellia Koreana Group

19th June 2011

My garden is like a slow motion accident. There is very little here that unfolds as expected or which follows the planned path. This Stewartia is trying to be an exception. It was planted because it is a tree that I admire and planting a tiny sapling was the best way to achieve that.
My youngster was pot grown and almost as soon as it was planted out it produced a premature flower which was worth photographing even in this rather tatty state. It will be several years before it produces another.
