A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering.  This is exciting even as a young seedling with new growth colored in reddish tones and besides, what is not to like about any Stewartia?  The leaf petioles on this species have an upper slight wing to them hence the species name.  A small tree which can get to 35' in the wild.  Small white flowers in late spring show its relation to Camellias.  A sheltered spot is best.  Proceeds from this offering go to support the mission of Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy.
