One of two beautiful early flowering, new hybrid tulip trees recently introduced to the United Kingdom. This particular, rare, grafted selection has the more commonly seen American tulip tree foliage, with large spade-like green leaves and striking, copper-green flowers as a relatively young plant without the familiar long wait normally endured before the standard Liriodendron tulipifera flowers.

Liriodendron x 'Chapel Hill' is a good choice of tree for larger gardens and woodland areas and should flower before it is ten years of age.
