I'm no botanist, and I don't even play one on TV.

Looks like Stewartia malacodendron to me!

Could it be Stewartia ovata?

Definitely Stewartia, would want some habitat and location info to go beyond that because of the similarity of the two.

Would there be a way to post a bigger picture?  And, how do we post the photos?  Some training will be needed.....and maybe some instructions in a very obvious place on the website............Fun to be in touch with folks this way.

If you click on the picture, it gets bigger. There's a size restriction on images. I can probably change that somewhere. And I can add a special board that is just instructions. In fact, I may be able to make a little movie showing how people can navigate the forum.

Also, if anyone thinks of other topics, let me know. I can add them easily.

Yep, could be, I just don't have much experience with S. ovata, so I went
with the one I know.  Aren't the stamens of S. ovata usually yellow?

I was with Merrill when she took this photo of Stewartia ovata on our field trip last spring to Lula Lake.
