LIRIODENDRON

T. L. tulipifera is the tulip tree with hanging greenish-white and orange flowers shaped like tulips. They appear in early summer. Deep, loamy soil is best as this ensures rapid growth. This tree may ultimately reach 80 ft. Propagation is not easy and it is usual to sow seed in autumn in a moist, shady position. Germination is unfortunately irregular.
