Although this could very well be a picture of me finding a new treasure at a favorite nursery, it's actually an illustration by David Catrow for a children's book called Plantzilla.

    1. If they hadn't been at a nursery, I might have done just that!

  3. Your Stewartia Serrata reminds me small birds sitting on the branch, Peter! Lovely!

    1. You're right, Nadezda, they do look like birds sitting on the branches.

  5. 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?

    1. They were very pretty. This one was at a nursery and, being young it's bark was unremarkable, smooth and gray.

  6. 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.

    1. Thanks, Ricki. Sorry that your seeds haven't shown any signs of life!

  7. Hi Peter. These are way cool. I would probably be clipping them for indoors if doing so didn't harm the tree.
