Stenanona is a genus of flowering plants in the family Annonaceae. There are about 14 species native to Mexico and Central and South America.[1] The genus is found in rainforest habitat.[2]

These plants are small trees. The leaves have a coating of hairs and are borne on swollen petioles. The petals are somewhat thin but moderately fleshy in texture and are various shades of pink or red; one species has purple flowers. The petals sometimes fade whitish. The flowers are bisexual.[1]
