Experimenting with Stewartia Propagation

Polly Hill was devoted to horticultural experimentation and raising plants from seed. She also named many of her favorite plants, including several cultivars (cultivated varieties) of stewartia. To get an exact duplicate (a genetic clone) of a plant, it must propagated asexually, which eliminates the genetic variability found in seed propagation.

Monday 8/8: The Plant Sale & Visitor Center will be closed today. The grounds remain open.
