Commonly known as the Tulip Tree for its large, green-yellow tulip like shaped flowers, this tree has large bright green, smooth lobed leaves that appear in the spring time, turning golden yellow in autumn. Flowers only appear on older trees but the light, bright foliage makes it a great option for creating contrast.
Liriodendron tulipifera is relatively fast growing and wind resistant. It performs well on most fertile soils and is a large, imposing, broadly pyramidal shape when fully grown.
Suited best to parks and large gardens, a mature Liriodendron tulipifera will give an unrivalled floral display. This tree is also desirable from a wildlife and ecological point of view as it is an excellent provider of pollen for bees.
Mature height: 12-17m
