Tulip-Tree, or Liriodendron tulipifera, L. a native of North America, in the temperate climates of which it attains the height of from 60 to 100 feet: in colder regions, it degenerates into a bush. - The wood of this elegant tree, while young, is white; but, at an advanced age, assumes a fine yellow colour. It is equally useful in building light vessels, and as fuel: on account of its quick growth and easy culture, this noble plant deserves to be reared in Britain. - With this view, the ripe seeds should be collected in October, carefully kept in a moist state, covered with leaves; and planted in the succeeding spring; as they require three years to strike proper roots.
