Japanese Stewartia in Bloom

The oldest of the 3 Japanese Stewartia trees that we have in our garden is now blooming.  The scientific name for it is Stewartia pseudocamillia.  In bloom, it is very obvious where the pseudocamillia part comes from because the flowers do look very camillia-esque.  We’ve had this tree for maybe 5 years now, and it’s having it’s best year yet as far as blooming goes.  Not only is it very pretty, but I also appreciate that it blooms a bit later than most of our flowering trees.

Just lovely!
