Positive RedClay007 On Jun 25, 2014, RedClay007 from Richmond, VA (Zone 7a) wrote:

Very fast growing, with huge leaves, especially when compared to our native version of Liriodendron. New growth is a rich red/burgundy. Unfortunately, not resistant to introduced Asian pests such as Japanese beetles and Asiatic garden beetles, which have ravaged both my native and Chinese Liriodendrons.

If this tree escaped into the wild, would most people be able to tell the differance between it and the american version?

Fall color is a mild yellow. Great shade tree. Flowers best in warmer climates. Requires moist, well-drained soil.
