The Stewartias are a small but valuable genus of ornamentals in the Tea Family, and are closely related to Camellias.  Japanese Stewartia is more tree-like than the native species (S. malacodendron and S. ovate) and its bark is more distinctly flaking.  This species was introduced before 1878. A Korean variety of this species was introduced by E. H. Wilson in 1917.
