Description

Stewartia malacodendron, the silky camellia, silky stewartia or Virginia stewartia, is a large deciduous shrub or small tree, typically 3–4.5 m (10–15 ft) tall, but sometimes as tall as 9 m (30 ft). It is native to the southeastern United States. The flowers are 60–90 mm (2.4–3.5 in) wide, showy, with five white petals. The stamens have purple filaments and blue anthers. Stewartia malacodendron blooms in July and August in the northern part of its range and in April in the southern part of its range.

Stewartia malacodendron is native to Texas, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida (panhandle region), Louisiana and southern Alabama and as far north as Virginia. This tree species is listed as endangered in the US states of Arkansas and Florida.

Plants have a slow growth rate, are difficult to transplant and are a challenge to propagate. They grow best in partial shade in well draining soils.

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Soak the seeds in hot tap water, let stand in water for 24 hours. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature for 120 days. They will not grow yet. Then a cooling period is required. Cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 90 days. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F) for them to germinate. Germination is in 14-60 days after the warming period, though they can take up to 4 months.
