Liriodendron tulipifera Fastigiata is an upright form of the Tulip tree which is perfect for planting where space is at a premium.
This tree has large bright green, smooth lobed leaves that appear in the spring time, turning to golden yellow in the autumn time.
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 variety will produce a floral display when still young; at Barcham we regularly see flowers produced by Medium sized trees.
Liriodendron tulipifera Fastigiata has a very stiffly upright branching system and as such produces a tear drop shape at maturity. It is similar to the growth pattern of the Upright Hornbeam, Carpinus betulus Fastigiata, which will be very columnar when young, maturing to have a somewhat middle aged spread and “fat” tear dropped shape.
Unlike some ornate specimen trees this variety is wind resistant and will thrive on most well fertile soils.
This medium sized tree is a great choice for specimen planting in parklands and can also be effectively planted as an avenue; its regular, upright shape providing the uniform quality desired for such planting.
Being much smaller than the species, this tree is also a great choice for smaller gardens and enables those with a challenge on space to enjoy their unique floral display.
