The Q&A Archives: Liriodendron tulipfera

Question: The flowers are hard to see amongst the foliage. Is there a variety that has a flower larger in size and brighter in color that is easier to pick out?

Answer: I'm afraid that the nature of Liriodendron is to produce their flowers high up in the canopy of the tree, making them difficult to see before they fall to the ground. There is a cultivar with yellow margins on the leaves, but the yellow tuliplike flowers are really lost in the tree! Wish there were another variety, but I'm afraid there is not.
