We’ve been following a Tulip Tree in a nearby city park as its buds opened, leaves formed, and flowers blossomed. Today we visited the tree again and found some big green fruits where flowers used to be:
This tree still has some flowers left if you want to see them, but hurry because they’re fading fast. The tree is in Oak Park, on the south side of Rehm Park, where Scoville deadends into the park.
Go here to see what happened to the seeds as summer turned into fall.
Go here to see photos of the tree earlier in the year, including flowers, leaves, and buds, plus the remains of last year’s fruits. This page also includes links to more information about Tulip Trees.
