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.
