"Chinese Tulip Tree"
This fast growing tree makes a lovely tree in a central lawn position.
It is broadly columnar in habit and has unusual deep green leaves.
These four-lobed leaves emerge with a slight purple colour.
The tulip shaped flowers have a green exterior and a yellow interior.
As they are produced amongst the leaves, they are not easily seen but are loved by bees and butterflies.
It matures as a large tree, more than 7 metres in height.
