Tulip Tree


Unusual gift for that special friend !

Tulip Tree-
Although generally thought of as an ornamental specimen and avenue tree in Britain the tulip tree is actually a producer of fine timber. In southern parts of Britain it can grow quickly.  In its amenity role its foliage is the most striking feature. The leaves are saddle shaped with the tip truncated as if cut cleanly across with scissors. The flowers in June and July are reminiscent of pale green tulips with a flash of orange. The bark of large specimens develops an intricate lattice pattern. It also has a rather pleasant smell if bruised. This member of the Magnolia family was introduced to Britain from North America in the seventeenth century.
