Stewartia rostrata, also known as Beaked Stewartia, Chinese Stewartia, or Upright Stewartia, is a stunning deciduous shrub or tree that can grow up to 10 meters tall. The bark is a beautiful slate gray and the branches are ascending, usually several from the base. The leaves are ovate to elliptic, papery, and serrated, with elevated midveins abaxially. The flowers are axillary, with white petals that are obovate to suborbicular, and finely sericeous outside. The stamens are numerous and filaments are basally connate into a 6-8 mm tube and adnate to petals, with distinct parts pubescent. The ovary is subglobose, 5-angled, and basally densely sericeous, while the style is glabrous and terminates in 5 marginally ciliate stigmatic arms. The fruits are subglobose capsules with apex rostrate, containing narrow-winged obovate seeds. This beautiful plant typically flowers from May to July and fruits from September.
