Planted in 2009 as one of 15 trees to establish the Dumont Shade Tree Arboretum. A Small Tree which matures at under 25′, smaller than the flagpole or a house.
Stewartia, Stewartia pseudocamellia, is a native of Japan and Korea. The charming white flowers in summer are similar to it’s relative the Camellia, as the Latin name implies.
This little tree will grow slowly to under 25′ tall, and is great for planting under wires or in tight spaces. In the home landscape, plant near a deck or patio for a spot of fun in the hot summer.
Look for our Stewartia near the Madison Avenue Entrance to the Arboretum.
The Dumont Shade Tree Commission has approved the Stewartia (S) Tree for the Adopt-A-Tree Program. To Apply for an Adopt-A-Tree, contact Borough Hall, or Click Here.
