Stewartia is a genus of flowering plants in the Theaceae family, native to Asia, China, Japan and Korea. The genus was named in by Carl Linnaeus in 1753 to honour the 3rd Earl of Bute, John Stuart. A spelling error gave Linnaeus the name 'Stewart', and consequently spelled the name ‘Stewartia’. Some botanists and horticulturists, correct ‘Stewartia’ to Stuartia, and therefore both spellings are recognized.
Stewartia are deciduous trees or shrubs with goblet-shaped blooms and fascinating multi-tonal flaking bark and large ovate, bright green leaves that flourish and thrive during summer. The foliage will also produce a sensational autumnal display.
