Re: Amazon lily NOW Other Flowers

What I found interesting about the state trees is that the EASTERN Redbud, Cercis canadensis, is the state tree of Oklahoma. It just struck me as a strange choice. However, I have several Cercis canadensis, some from TN stock and some from OK stock. The TN ones developed what, to me, is the typical redbud structure - sort of wiggly-oriental-bonsaishape in habit and not tall. But the OK ones got HUGE and were fairly straight and tall with only a bit of the wiggly-oriental-bonsaishape I'm used to. I eventually had to cut them down.

Patricia and Jesse, what do you think of your state tree?

The tulip poplar, however, is the
state tree of TN and is very prevalent in the local woods.

Zem, I do not know of another tulip tree in my area. I purchased my tree
after visiting the McCormick estate outside Chicago. On the south side of the
mansion long straight lines of trees grew. Each row a different variety with
one being the tulip tree. I viewed it in July so the blooms are a bonus.
