This North American native is a moderate to fast growing deciduous tree that grows 15 - 20m tall x 7m wide with a oval shaped habit, aromatic bark with bright green, soft lobed leaves that turn yellow in Autumn.


When the tree reached 5 - 7 years of age, erect pale green or yellow Tulip like conical flowers with orange centres borne in clusters held in the upper branches in late Spring to early Summer.

Supplementary watering during extremely dry periods is necessary.


This large ornamental tree is a host plant for caterpillars, attracts wildlife and is pollinated by beetles and bees, often used as a honey producing tree yielding a dark, reddish and strong flavoured honey.

It is resistant to moderate drought, pests and wind as well as air pollution.


Makes a great feature for wide lawns, as a feature tree, parks, gardens and shade tree as well as a Bonsai specimen.
