Liriodendron tulipifera - Tulip Tree
Liriodendron tulipifera - Tulip tree; named after its characteristic tulip shaped flowers which are yellow with an orange flare at the base. Native to North America where its timber is highly regarded. Most commonly planted in the UK as a specimen tree or as part of a mixed woodland.
In our opinion the main attraction of the tulip tree is the stunning autumn colours of golden yellows and coppery browns.
