Project 365 - The Stewartia
There was no historic value to the 2 foot Stewartia sapling I purchased for next to nothing. It rode for the remainder of of our trip and all the way home between my sister in law's feet.
When I got home I planted it. It grew a bit, but was not happy in it's new home. So I moved it one day to a sunny spot that allows me to see it from my family room window. We were both happy.
Today it blooms with white purity in spring for up to 6 weeks. In winter, it's multicolored mottled bark outside my window reminds me that spring is really not that far away.
