Picture of Liriodendron Tulipifera

Tulip Tree. An attractive tall upright tree that has distinctive lobed leaves. In the spring it flowers with unusual tulip shaped green blooms with orange markings. An excellent paddock tree with mellow yellow autumn foliage. May take some years to flower but worth the wait. Deciduous. Est 10yr.growth.

The Liriodendron is a close relative of the Magnolia and likes the same type of deep acid soil. It is more tolerant of moisture than the Magnolia. A perfect memorial tree to celebrate a birth. Give this tree the space it deserves to reach its full magnificence.
