Markhamia lutea - Nile Tulip Tree Flowers

Markhamia lutea - Nile Tulip Tree Flowers (Markhamia lutea - Nile Tulip Tree)

A close up of some of the many flowers on my large Nile Tulip tree. This tree is full of flowers with all the heat we've had lately. These flowers have an incredibly sweet fragrance. This is one of my favorite spring, summer and fall flowering trees. Photo taken July 2, 2013.
