This is a long lived shade tree that grows 100 ft. tall by about 50 ft. wide. It has unusual shaped leaves and flowers that resemble yellow tulips in June. Best when provided plenty of room, full sun, well-drained soil and deep watering once every 7-10 days during the hot months. If planted within a lawn, you must keep the turf away from its trunk and water deeply and independently of the turf to keep the large roots from surfacing. Not temperature sensitive or prone to disease and does not need protection.
