This small shrubby Chinese denizen vaunts a lot of four-season luxe: copious cup-shaped white flowers, fabulous exfoliating bark and handsome toothed dark green leaves, which brandish bronze-toned new growth plus bright crimson fall color. Exquisite camellia-like scented blooms line upward arching branches, while long artful cinnamon-colored strips peel off, revealing a marble-smooth light rosy tan finish beneath. Ideal for a small garden, courtyard, informal setting or a woodland’s edge, Chinese Stewartia can be ensconced amid Oakleaf Hydrangeas and skirted by swaths of Sesleria and Calamagrostis foliosa. A protected, yet somewhat bright abode with acidic well-drained, humus-rich soil ensures its vitality. Grows moderately
