Liriodendron Tulipifera Aureomarginatum, better known as the Tulip Tree Aureomarginatum, is a deciduous flowering tree whose blooms resemble tulips. It was introduced to the UK in 1900 and is smaller in size than its parent tree Liriodendron Tulipifera which holds the RHS AGM. 

In spring Liriodendron Tulipifera Aureomarginatum’s foliage appears dark green with light yellow marinated edges. These leaves are saddle-shaped, much like a maple leaf, measuring six inches long.  Alongside its showy foliage, greenish yellow tulip-shaped blooms with orange insides appear in June to July. These blooms appear upright on the branch tips and measure around 4cms in length. They are still unusual in the UK and put on a very pretty show. In autumn the variegated leaves begin to pale and lose their distinctive markings. They turn golden yellow and coppery brown and fall with the frosts to reveal a pyramidal shaped framework for winter. 

Height and Spread of Liriodendron Tulipifera Aureomarginatum
Tulip Tree Aureomarginatum is a medium-sized tree with a branching habit that will flower early in its maturity. It is strong growing and will reach a maximum of 12-17 metres in height and spread 8 metres over 20-50 years. 

How Hardy Is Liriodendron Tulipifera Aureomarginatum
This very pretty tree is extremely hardy and capable of withstanding the harshest UK winters. It is also wind and pollution resistant and able to deal with short term flooding once established. 

How To Use Liriodendron Tulipifera Aureomarginatum
This is one of the best specimen trees you can buy. It looks stunning in the centre of a lawn or as a focal point in the flower bed. Its variegation brightens a dull spot, and the pretty pale flowers reflect light in early summer. Plant it against a dark backdrop so the pretty foliage stands out. 

Tulip Tree Aureomarginatum is more suited to small and medium sized gardens than its parent tree, as its height and spread is restricted. An urban garden looking for a pretty flowering show can’t go wrong with it. 

How To Take Care of Liriodendron Tulipifera Aureomarginatum
Tulip Tree Aureomarginatum needs little care once established. Despite its pretty nature it is tough and reliable in most soils. It prefers acid to neutral pH but will grow in chalkier soils too. If your soil is chalky add plenty of well-rotted nature to the planting hole and a thick layer of mulch year to ensure it can draw the nutrients it needs. 
Any aspect is fine, though as with most trees it prefers a sunny spot. Pruning is not necessary as the pyramidal nature of its growth keeps a pleasing shape, but you can remove any broken or badly placed branches in winter dormancy.

Liriodendron Tulipifera Aureomarginatum is a magnificent flowering tree small enough to suit most gardens. It’s tough but pretty and low maintenance making it a great choice for busy gardeners who appreciate a summer flower show with little effort.
