General tree description for Liriodendron tulipifera

Liriodendron tulipifera is a fast-growing tree that can reach heights of 35 metres in Britain. It has pale grey bark with criss-crossing ridges and large (up to 18cm long), distinctively saddle-shaped leaves. These are bright green, turning yellow and gold in autumn. In June and July there are upright yellow-green flowers, somewhat tulip-shaped, and about 4cm in length. The fruits are winged seeds in a cone-like structure, which forms in the autumn and disintegrates the following spring.
