Liriodendron Tulipifera, also known as the Tulip Tree is a fairly fast growing deciduous flowering tree. This popular decorative tree boasts a pyramidal growth habit, interesting foliage, and eye-catching blossoms. The flowers are circa 4 cm in length, bright greenish/yellow with markings of red and orange and appear on the tree in mid-summer, staying on the tree for weeks. As the name of the tree suggests, its blossoms resemble those of tulips - albeit larger.
But the striking tulip-like flowers are not this tree’s only quality. The leaves are very unusual because they have a saddle-like shape. In the autumn, the peculiar foliage becomes even more lovely as it turns to a butter-yellow.

The Tulip Tree can grow over 10 metres in height if left unchecked. Prune and shape if you want to keep the tree smaller.
