The flowers of the Tulip Tree, shown below, are are green-and-orange, approximately 2 inches long and are abundant from June onwards but tend to be lost in the foliage so you often have to look hard for them. Once thistree has finished flowering the biscuit-brown seed heads are left to be present throughout the winter months.

We have several Tulip Trees around the gardens at Scotney, from very young ones which have not yet produced flowers (they often have to be at least 15 years old to produce flowers) to our impressive specimen trees which are over 50 years old. Next time you visit Scotney see how many of these Tulip Trees you can spot, they really are beautiful trees!
