Stewartia ovata, also known as Mountain Camellia or Mountain Stewartia, is a unique deciduous flowering shrub or small tree that grows up to 5m tall. Found in low to mid-elevations of the southern Appalachian Mountains, this plant boasts smooth, flaking grayish-orange bark that adds to its charm. The leaves are oval-shaped with an acute apex, turning orange, red, or gold when dormant in the fall. In early to mid-summer, beautiful camellia-like flowers with five white petals and numerous stamens can be spotted on this fascinating plant. Stewartia ovata is a rare species that grows in the understories of hardwood forests near streams, typically at elevations below 800m. It is a member of the tea family and is considered uncommon throughout its range.
