I am hoping that some one here knows about the african tulip trees.
we have one growing, it`s a very healthy specimen, it`s approx. 3m
high, single trunk.
can we cut the tip out to incourage branches?
have you checked google? I’ve had a brief search, but all I can find is warnings that in a lot of areas, this tree is a noxious weed.
Better check with your council to see if it is a declared noxious weed in your area before you start getting too fond of it.
There are also suggestions for alternative trees …
As Andre said, the African Tulip is a declared weed in some states. Also, it attracts and kills the native stingless bees. More information here:
i will make sure to check with our council,
however, here in NSW where we are they grow as street
trees,flower for ever and look great.
Please, please consider lopping it. It has toxic pollen which kills native bees.
