African Tulip Tree (spathodea campanulata)

Big crinkled red orange tulip like bells with red streaked gold throats and frilly yellow edges bud out of horn shaped, velvety buds on the branch tips of this spectacular tree. With a picturesque buttressed truck and gray bark there seems to be no end to the awesomeness of this tree. Once flowers are pollinated they are followed by 5 – 10 inch greenish brown finger like pods that curl up and out over the leaves. These trees are drought tolerant but will be happiest in a moist environment with plenty to drink.
