This is the closest I come to seeing anything that resembles a tulip in my part of the world.
This tree has a single trunk, a broad domed crown and displays leaves that are slightly hairy and shiny on the top.
These flowers begin as a ball-shaped cluster around the middle of Autumn. You can see the fabulous flower buds in this photo below.
The outer buds bloom first before the inner ones. Blooming begins at the end of Autumn and continues on through our Winter.
