Turip and Lily投稿日: 2011年2月2日
Liriodendron tulipifera, turip trees are called as “Yuri no ki” in Japanese. “Yuri” means a lily, “ki” means a tree. “Yuri no ki” means “a tree of lily.” Turips aren’t similar to lilies. Why do they called lily trees? I’ve wondered. The above is a photo of a turip tree. It has many dry fruits. The bellow is a photo of a real lily’s hull. I can say that they are similar. Is that the reason why turip trees are called as lily trees?
