Although the common name if this plant is Silky Camellia but it is fact Stewartia macalodendron, it’s from stream sides in southern mississippi. Over here it needs careful sighting and in the Harris garden its it is a bit crowded in by some native Hollies. The flowers are just exquisite! I don’t exaggerate just a really class plant.

A few months earlier this Davidia flowered very beautifully a few yards away; I spotted a retired academic giving it the eye! It was a wet day – we lurched from wet spring to heat wave; I believe the days of normal weather have passed.
