Our Japanese Stewartia tree (Stewartia pseudocamellia) is 13 years old and has finally started blooming the last few years. But the flowers were so high up we could barely see them as we stared upward into the sun. This year the tree finally set buds all the way down to the lowest branches. A long wait but worth it to be able to enjoy these beautiful flowers up close. And the tree flowers in July when most others are long finished flowering.
