Upright Tulip Tree
Height, colour and unusual features, Liriodendron tulipifera fastigiata is anything but dull. Growing to an impressive 20m tall but a convenient 4m wide, this striking tree adds a sweeping vertical element to the landscape. Densely covered in large paddle shaped leaves that are verdant green in Summer, turing bright gold and copper in Autumn, it contrasts wonderfully with finer foliaged plants. The Tulip tree takes its common name from the large orange and green flowers that bloom in late Spring. A great choice in larger landscapes or with tall buildings, this is a stunning tree with lots of character.
