Notes
This lovely plant is such a challenge for us to grow in pots and with the abundance of summer rain this year it made it even more of a challenge. This has set us back another year. We are compiling a wish list at this time and if you can email us with Stewartia in the subject line we will be more than happy to put you on our list.
