WHAT DOES TULIP TREE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

tulip tree

Liriodendron

Liriodendron /ˌlɪri.ɵˈdɛndrən/ is a genus of two species of characteristically large deciduous trees in the magnolia family. These trees are widely known by the common name tulip tree or tuliptree for their large flowers superficially resembling tulips, though they are not closely related to the true tulips. The Latin Liriodendron actually means "lily tree", though again the resemblance is only superficial. The tulip tree is sometimes referred to as "tulip poplar" or "yellow poplar", and the wood simply as "poplar", although Liriodendron is not closely related to the true poplars either. The tree is also called canoewood, saddle-leaf tree and white wood. Two species of Liriodendron are known extant. Liriodendron tulipifera is native to eastern North America, while Liriodendron chinense is native to China and Vietnam. Both species often grow to great size, sometimes exceeding 32 m in height. The American species is commonly used horticulturally, and hybrids have been produced between these two allopatrically distributed species.
