Native to Japan and Korea. Slow-growing, all-season performers that show off fresh green leaves in spring, white flowers resembling single camellias in summer, and colorful foliage in fall. In winter, a distinctive pattern of bare branches is on show, as is smooth bark that flakes off in varying degrees, depending on the species. All grow best in acid, organically enriched soil. Good in woodland gardens and as foreground specimens against a backdrop of larger, darker-leafed trees.Stewartia monadelpha
