Stewartia rostrata

Family theaceae
Life cycle tree (Z6-7)
Flowers white (May)
Size 8-10'
Light sun-part shade

Species from eastern China. Reportedly easier to grow than S. ovata, which it resembles. White flowers are surrounded by large reddish bracts, all offset by dark green leaves.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
