My Spathodea campanulata - African Tulip Tree


My Spathodea campanulata - African Tulip Tree (Spathodea campanulata - African Tulip Tree)

My African Tulip tree is blooming and growing very quickly! It's already put on 4ft/1.2m of growth so far this year...I expect at least another foot/31cm or more of growth by years end. Photo taken August 12, 2011.

Meanie:

Seedlings typically pop up under trees. I planted some seeds (which I got from the park) they haven't germinated yet...not sure why.
