This specimen is a real beauty ! It stands out with its glowing variegated foliage in the spring and gently fades to a greener variegation in summer. Fast growing and has done well in my zone 7b-8 garden.Highly reccomended

I would like to get a Variegated Tulip Popular - any type including Aureomarginatum. Seeds from such a tree would be good. Also desirable are live cuttings that I could graft onto one of the small Tulip Trees I have.

Any source of this sort of tree is also desirable.

I'm also looking for dwarf Tulip Trees.
