Why does no one plant native Stewartia?

I just discovered there are two species of Stewartia native to North America, Stewartia ovata and Stewartia malacodendron. Native flowering trees, at least one of which is good to zone 5/ Why are these so seldom planted? Is there some "catch"? Are they vulnerable to disease or something?
