Mixed Border with Good Structure and Seasonal Flow

Stewartia pseudocamellia is the star of this vignette: in early summer it's covered with white, camellia-like blooms; as the season winds down, fall color takes center stage; and its a silhouette with its creamy exfoliating bark is a lovely site year-round, though especially appreciated in winter. The other evergreen components, important anchors through the seasons, include a dwarf Canadian hemlock, Tsuga canadensis 'Bennett', the neat and compact bun of Pittosporum tobira 'Shima', and along the base a fringe of Heuchera 'Plum Pudding', rounds out the foliage frame.
