Tulip Tree in Flower

And my Tulip tree (Liriodenron, or similar spelling) is in flower.


I love these flowers, about two inches each across, and very primitive. You have to look hard to see them on the tree.

It's such fun see your garden blooming as the I watch my garden here in the US going to sleep for the winter.

I just looked at our Tulip Tree and couldn't see a flower anywhere. Do you suppose that's because it's only two feet high and still in a pot? LOL.

Very interesting flower, quite lovely. My friends have a huge Tulip Tree, even contemplated having it removed last year as it almost fills half the backyard. I must ask if they have flowers on theirs.

Had a look at our Tulip Tree in a pot yesterday and I do believe it has flower buds. That's a bonus.

I have just raced out to look at my Tulip Tree - in bare feet, over gravel, not the cleverest thing I have done. Darn it - Not a flower in sight!! How long did it take before yours flowered??? Mine is at least six feet high, and lots of leaves - which I love, just no flowers.

Tulip Tree Update - alas, the buds unfurled to reveal another collection of leaves. Drat. Hope you have a good day in your garden tomorrow, Chloe, with lots of visitors.

I have been told they take fifteen years to flower - but I think mine flowered at about eight or nine. I think you might have a little while yet, Alice. But Calidore is nearly there. :)

And I have a carpet of flowers around mine - the Cockatoos have been busy. :(

What a wonderful tree!
I wonder if it grows/thrives in a sub-tropical situation.
I must check out the Botanical Gardens!
