Liriodendron tulipifera

Tuliptree is considered the tallest growing deciduous tree in North America (30m tall specimen located in Virginia). Broad green leaves are up to 12cm long, tulip-shaped and turn bright yellow in fall. Beautiful tulip-shaped flowers, yellow-green with orange internal markings from June to July are, however, hard to see among the green leaves. Spectacular as specimen (solitary) tree. Spreading root system. Furrowed grayish-brown bark.
