Oh, look at all those lovely seeds! Such interesting seedpods, on a great tree.
If I only had space for another tree...
Very tempting to open them up!
If they hadn't been at a nursery, I might have done just that!
Your Stewartia Serrata reminds me small birds sitting on the branch, Peter! Lovely!
You're right, Nadezda, they do look like birds sitting on the branches.
Lovely. Such beauty in small things when captured so well in your camera lens.
Thanks Linda, I'm glad you enjoyed them.
Lovely, reminds me of Rose hips, and I can see bits of the new growth already.I'm not closely familiar with Stewartia but thought part of their appeal was their unusual spotted trunk. What is your variety like?
They were very pretty. This one was at a nursery and, being young it's bark was unremarkable, smooth and gray.
I got some of those seeds from HPSO and planted them. No signs of life so far. Perhaps they are more to be admired than put to use. They sure look great in your photos.
Thanks, Ricki. Sorry that your seeds haven't shown any signs of life!
Oh, that is really pretty
What beautiful seed pods!
Hi Peter. These are way cool. I would probably be clipping them for indoors if doing so didn't harm the tree.
Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I love to hear your thoughts.
