The Indiana state tree, leaves have a distinctive 'cat-face' shape. A member of the Magnolia family, flowers are large, greenish-yellow with orange centers, and interestingly showy, if any are located within viewing distance. Bees utilize the flowers for honey. When open grown, the tree can be pyramidal, but when forest-grown, this tree typically has a very tall straight trunk which is free of branches for the majority of its height. Cone-like dry fruits remain on the tree into winter.
