This tree has large bright green, smooth lobed leaves that appear in the spring time, turning to golden yellow in the autumn time. The most notable feature of the Tulip tree is the curious large, green-yellow tulip shaped flowers produced in June and July and despite the fact they are only produced by older trees, in our opinion, the flowers are more than worth the wait.
Liriodendron tulipifera was introduced from America where it is known as Whitewood in North America, owing to the fact its timber has been used for house interiors. In its native land, this tree has been known to tower to tremendous heights, reportedly some specimens reaching over 60m in height. This tree is a large and imposing specimen tree which produces a broadly pyramidal shape at maturity.
Unlike some ornate trees Liriodendron tulipifera is relatively fast growing and wind resistant, it also performs well on most fertile soils.
A stunning tree suitable for planting in parks and large gardens, Liriodendron tulipifera gives a unique floral display which cannot be easily rivalled in other trees of such impressive stature. This tree is also desirable from an ecological point of view; the pollen harvested by bees from the flowers apparently produces superb honey!
Mature height: 20m+
