Stewartia pseudocamelia is one of more attractive of ornamental bushes. The main of decorative quality are: ornamental flowers, non-typical florescence (from end of June to August), original bark and attractive overcolouring of leaves in autumn season. Apart diseases affected Stewartia during vegetation period, the most dangerous are those which infest seedlings. The total number of 132 colonies of fungi were obtained from the sore seedlings of Stewartia. The isolates represented 19 species of thirteen genera. The most dominated of them were fungi of species: Cladosporium cladosporioides, Cylindrocarpon radicicola, Fusarium avenaceum and F. oxysporum. These above-mentioned fungi together with: Phytophthora cinnamomi, Botrytis cinerea, Penicillium spp., Alternaria alternata, Rhizoctonia solani and Pythium debaryanum belonged to the group of dominants and consistued 79.02% of total community.Keywords:
