This is a Stewartia pseudocamelia, my favorite tree. I am still deciding what species of tree I want my post-organ-donation remains to be buried under when my body fails me (should be a while) but Stewartia is right up at the top of the list! There is something so sensual about this tree. It's lean, angular, muscular, looks like it should be warm, like a human limb, but when you touch it, it's cold and firm. This is my favorite tree in the entire arboretum....even the beech I climbed in the previous photo come second to this one. :-)
