Spring Tree Update: Blossoms on our Tulip Tree

Tulip Tree Bloom 1

Our tulip tree is blooming like crazy! I have never seen so many blossoms on this tree and the bees have noticed too. The buzzing starts as soon as the sun rises and continues most of the day.

Wouldn’t you want to buzz around this blossom and collect some pollen too? The colors and patterns are very impressive if you take the time to observe them up close. You can see clearly the inner part that will become the helicopter seeds in the fall right there in the middle of the blossom.

You can see how the sepals bend back and expose the flowers. The design of this flower truly shows the finger of our Grand Creator.

  1. We used to have a tulip tree in my backyard growing up, but it became diseased and my parents had to cut it down. I miss it. Thanks for sharing your pictures!

  2. Beautiful pics! Is this the same as a tulip poplar? We have those here, but I’ve never seen any blossoms. The leaves are very similar.

  3. I have never see a flower as that, it’s incredible, thanks for sharing.

  4. Oh My Good Gravy! That is amazing. I need to run around town and find one!!!!

  5. I have never seen that tree, and I think it’s absolutely beautiful! I wonder if it can be grown in Minnesota?
