Copacul cu lalele (Liriodendron tulipifera)

The yellow poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera)
One of the largest hardwoods in the eastern United States, the yellow poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera) is more commonly known as the tulip tree. It is, in fact, the only tulip tree native to North America, and only one of two tulip trees in the world. It is not actually related to true poplars, but is rather a member of the magnolia family.
At the entrance to Aninoasa, in Hunedoara County, Romania, grows a yellow poplar specimen, referred to by locals, as the "Jules Verne's Tree". It had been planted in the castle garden (which no longer exists), built by Baron Maderspach and his wife, Anne Margarette. She was a Botanist and had a flair for aesthetics. She decided to bring the tree from Paris, to the Castle’s Arboretum, a real dendrological park which was cared for at the time, by gardeners brought from far-away Angentina. She had been corresponding by letter, for a long time, with Jules Verne and legend has it that he wrote the "Castle in the Carpathians" inspired by the places and landscapes described by Anne-Margarette in her letters
