Sunday Phlog: Under the Tulip tree

Continuing the Tree celebration, images of the Carolinian forest giant – Liriodendron tulipifera and a few other trees.

Liriodendron tulipifera

Liriodendron tulipifera– Tulip tree, Tulip Poplar or Whitewood, with its unmistakable four-lobed leaves, it is our tallest native deciduous tree. Superb, from the pyramidal shape when young and the glossy bright green leaves, to the tulip-shaped flowers and golden fall colouration. A glorious tree in old age.
