We got this tree from the National Auburn Society years ago, when we got 100 trees from them. This was one of the free "walnut" trees included in our order. Doesnt look like a walnut tree to me. What is it? Any ideas?

I am not an expert by any means. Just a guess, a flowering tree like that down here would likely be a tulip poplar...

This is a Tulip Poplar: http://www.naturehills.com/product/tulip_poplar.aspx
John it appears to be an Althea bush, also called a Rose of Sharron, a relative to the Hybiscus. The flowers are smaller than the hybiscus and come in many different colors and flower design. I have a purple one that has a double petal flower.

That is definitely a Rose of Sharon - more of a bush than a tree.

Told you I was no expert! I better stick to the Cub forum!

Thanks, Raymond and Ellen, I know nothing about trees (or bushes)! :lol:
