A four-season performer, monodelpha has 2-inch white cup flowers in June, a brilliant orange-red fall leaf color, and orange-cinnamon bark. I have heard several serious and normally sober plant people go into an ecstatic rapture about this tree. It slowly reaches a height of 20'–25' though can be considered an excellent bonsai candidate. Among the Stewartias it is perhaps most sun-tolerant; drought-tolerant once established, it does not like wet soil, nor does it like compact soil. It's a beaut!
Minimum temperature: -10° F
