Notes
Tulip Trees are botanically primitive, they are related to Magnolias and are found in the fossils from the Cretaceous period 70 million years ago.
This fine specimen was growing in a garden in Temple St in 1976, it was moved to Knowle as a 4ft sapling when the owner, Lorna Lever (formerly Mrs Humberstone) moved to Harcombe Lane.  The slope allows flowers to be seen at eye level in June.
