Stewartia species at Quarryhill:
Stewartia are flowering trees which are among the most beautiful of all. Stewartia is a relatively small species, and many of those have been collected and are growing at Quarryhill.
This quiet and serene grove is dedicated to volunteer Sam Douglas, who, on passing in 2006, left the bulk of his estate to Quarryhill as a legacy gift. A bronze plaque on a granite stone in the grove honors the memory of Sam, and his legacy to the garden. For more information on Legacy Gifts see the Giving section.
