I posted the name of this tree as The Tulip Tree and have found out that it is really called "Jane Magnolia." I have always known them by the name of "tulip tree"; however, that name refers to a yellow poplar tree. So, let me correct myself and say the Jane Magnolia trees are in bloom in Houston gardens right now. They are showy and pretty. It's true, they are a cousin of the magnolia. One could be walking down a street and stop dead in his/her tracks when seeing a Jane Magnolia tree. Que bonita!
