Well-behaved trees that won't take over your yard -- or your neighbor's.

Considering this lovely tree's four-season usefulness, it's a wonder that it's not better known. Magnificently hued bark dresses up the winter garden, white flowers appear in July when few other woody plants are blooming and fall foliage can be a soft reddish-purple, red and orange. A cousin, Korean stewartia (S. koreana), is a bit smaller, and its slightly larger flowers bloom for a longer period of time. Supply stewartias with acid, peaty soil and a little afternoon shade.
