Tulip Tree

Liriodendron tulipifera (Tulip Tree)


18. Also near the south Reed Hall entrance you can find a tree with unusual flowers and a rhythmic sounding scientific name: Liriodendron tulipifera (Tulip tree, or Yellow Poplar). Leaves of this tree are simple, alternate, and each have 4 lobes with a deep notch near the tip. The late summer flowers look very much like tulips with green and/or orange petals.
