Flower of the Day – May 14, 2018 – Our Tulip Tree Story

Feel free to add your floral photo to the comments. This way we can all enjoy everyone’s flowers.

Judy from Lifelessons blog helped me identify this tree.  I now believe it is an African Tulip Tree.

When we bought our house in 2014, this bush had maybe a couple of leaves on it.  We didn’t think it would live.  This tree is about 4 feet high appeared to have a lot of dead branches.  Chris over the last few years, she gave it love and watered it.  A two  years ago, we got our first little sickly looking blooms.  Last year we had about half the blooms of this year.  This is our little miracle plant.

Here is one of its blooms up close.

  1. How lucky for you to have nursed this orange azalea back to its full splendor! I had tried for years to purchase that color but to no avail. You captured its beauty perfectly.


  2. That is a fantastic azalea Bush you have. We could never have outside in Switzerland, it is too cold. We can only have the so-called alpine roses, which are also an azalea.
