- Comments:An elegant, eye-catching specimen that holds its own in the largest yards. Sunshine-yellow, tulip-shaped flowers in late Spring. Glowing yellow foliage in Fall. Fast growing to 50 – 80 feet. Because of its large size, it is not a tree to be planted next to a house, or in a small landscape. Despite all that rapid growth, the flowers may not appear until the plants are 10-15 years old.
