This tree of the Carolinian forest is fast growing, and produces yellow-green tulip shaped flowers in June. It can grow to 25 m. Requires a sheltered location, as Peterborough is outside its normal range. ( Zone 5+)

Height x Width (feet): 80 x 50

Sun Requirements: Full sun to partial shade

Water Requirements: Normal to moist soils

Heritage Value: While a rare tree in our area, there are a couple of monsters that when in bloom, can out-show almost any tree in Peterborough!
