Available Autumn 2018 - A very rare species of Liriodendron with large, ornamental leaves which was first introduced to the United Kingdom in 1901 from China. Liriodendron chinensis grows to be a slightly smaller tree than the more familiar American tulip tree and has larger and more narrowly waisted, grey-green leaves.
In spring and early summer, the young foliage is an attractive chocolate-purple colour, darkening to green as the leaves age. Once fully established it has flowers similar to those of the standard Liriodendron tulipifera, although these can take a long time to appear.
An unusual and highly ornamental, garden tree.
