It is native to Australia and is characterized by its rapid growth to a massively huge three-lobed canopy that can reach heights of up to 20 feet.
Argyrodendron trifoliolatum, also known as Brown Tulip Oak, can thrive in a variety of climates with full sun to semi-shade, making it an attractive option for gardens in USDA Zone 9-11. This big tree can reach heights of more than 20 feet, requiring plenty of room to grow into the stately shade tree it was destined to become. Moderate water is the best to keep this tree looking strong and healthy, allowing it to absorb the nutrients needed to reach its full potential.
The beauty of Argyrodendron trifoliolatum lies in its magnificent flower display. Beautiful, off-white clusters of spikes in drooping forms reminiscent of tulip petals burst throughout the canopy, giving this tree a unique appearance during its early summers.
When grown in pots, Argyrodendron trifoliolatum can be easily moved and relocated as needed. Just be sure to water and fertilize appropriately, and repot as needed to maintain loose, draining soil that won't retain too much moisture. In colder regions, it is recommended to move plants indoors, out of the harsh winter air, and provide with the occasional shower of water in the summer.
For those wanting to add a little bit of Australia to their gardens, try Argyrodendron trifoliolatum (Brown Tulip Oak). With its hardy and rapid growth and dazzling show of white and off-white tulip-like flower clusters, this tree can easily become a stunning addition to any garden.
