Honey TulipTM

Honey Tulip is named for the pale honey-yellow-orange colour of its large tulip-shaped flowers, borne on bare branches. It can be considered a yellow version of the well known Black Tulip.

The dark green foliage emerges after the flowers.

With a mature height of 3m-4m this is a relatively compact Magnolia and a good choice if space is limited.
