Winter hardy to USDA Zones 10-11 where it is easily grown in rich, moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates part shade, but best flowering is in full sun. May drop some leaves in dry seasons or when subjected to light frost.

Common name: African tulip
Color: Reddish-orange with yellow corolla margin
Bloom time: Seasonal bloomer
Height: 25.00 to 40.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
Place the seeds in a shallow glass bowl, and cover them with lukewarm water. Soak the seeds for 48 hours, and then drain the water from the seeds. Growing an African tulip tree from seed is not difficult.

Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 28 to 33 °C

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • African tulip trees are somewhat difficult to grow by seed but easy to propagate by taking tip or root cuttings, or by planting suckers.
  • As far as growing conditions, the tree tolerates shade but performs best in full sunlight.
  • Similarly, although it is relatively drought tolerant, African tulip tree is happiest with plenty of moisture.
  • Although it likes rich soil, it will grow in nearly any well-drained soil.


Care:
  • Newly planted African tulip trees benefit from regular irrigation.
  • However, once established, the tree requires little attention.
  • It is rarely bothered by pests or disease, but may temporarily shed its leaves during periods of severe drought.

  • African tulip trees should be pruned regularly because the branches, which tend to be brittle, break easily in harsh winds.
  • For this reason, the tree should be planted away from structures or smaller trees that may be damaged.


Special Feature:
Where winter hardy, it serves as an excellent flowering landscape tree. Shade tree. City parks. Brittle wood and susceptibility to wind damage make it a questionable selection for roadside use.
