American Tulip Tree

As we continue on BABY LEAF WEEK:  These baby leaves bend upward and out, then unfold along the midrib of the tiny leaf.  Bud scales as you see here are peeled back. A leaf you do not forget – its tip seemingly cut off and indented.

      My yard is simply too small for Liriodendron, so I feel for you. I have gifted them to friends and family so I may enjoy their awesomeness. Their need for slightly acidic pH can sometimes be a problem. Mostly though they seek consistent moisture – thriving well in irrigated lawn spaces.
