Liriodendron tulipifera Aureomarginata is a variety of the Tulip tree with spectacularly variegated leaves.
This tree has large, smooth lobed leaves that are dark green with distinctly variegated edges; they appear in spring and lose the distinction of the variation towards the end of the summer, further turning to golden yellow in autumn.
Like the species, the most notable feature of this tree is the curious large, green-yellow tulip shaped flowers produced in June and July and unlike its parent this tree tends to produce flowers at an early age; we regularly see Medium sized trees on the Barcham Trees nursery in flower.
Liriodendron tulipifera Aureomarginata was introduced into the UK in the early 1900’s and produces a smaller tree at maturity than the species that is also pyramidal in shape.
Unlike some ornate specimen trees this variety is wind resistant and will thrive on most well fertile soils. This mediums sized tree is a good choice for parklands settings yet is small enough to be accommodated in garden planting schemes too.
This tree is capable of bringing unique colour to a planting scheme, in a measured amount, without becoming too overpowering at maturity. It is best planted against a dark back drop to exaggerate the variegated foliage.
Mature height: 10-15m
