Liriodendron tulipifera 'Aureomarginatum' boasts unusual shaped foliage with distinctive golden margins in spring. As summer progresses the variegation recedes, with the foliage becoming greenish-yellow before turning to fabulous shades of buttery gold in autumn. Liriodendron tulipifera 'Aureomarginatum' is often slow to flower, taking up to 10 years - but with maturity it bears large, tulip-shaped flowers in midsummer, from which it gets its common name of Tulip Tree. This is an impressive deciduous tree with a large pyramid-shaped crown. It makes a fine specimen tree for large gardens, parklands and open spaces. Height: 17m (55’). Spread: 12m (39’).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Tulip Trees in a sunny or semi shaded position. Plant Liriodendron tulipifera in a rich, moist, well drained, neutral to slightly acid soil. Incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to improve the soil prior to planting, mixing it thoroughly and deeply.
More Info
Water regularly throughout the growing season until young Liriodendron trees are fully established. Tulip trees require little pruning other than to maintain their shape and remove damaged or crossing stems in late winter or early spring.
