Stewartia / Stewartia henryae

I planted Stewartia henryae 'Skyrocket' in early spring 2016, at the edge of the gravel garden. I got it at Broken Arrow nursery.

I was so devastated to lose the orangebark Stewartia monadelpha that had been at one side of the gravel garden, but this replacement, now planted on the other side, promises to be lovely.

It will be very narrow and tall, providing shade from the low afternoon western sun just where I need it.
