Propagation of the species of Liriodendron tulipifera L. belonging to the genus Liriodendron L. from the
family of Magnoliaceae Juss. (J. St. Hil.) by seeds was studied under the conditions of Absheron and stratification
was revealed to decrease during the rest period of the seeds and it was a main factor for the germination
of seeds. Seed germination was 6.0-8.0% at the optimal depth of 1.5-2.0 cm in open and closed ground
in spring. The average height of annual plants was 22-48 cm and 7-15 leaves were formed on them. In
Absheron, in the open area the growth of the species L.tulipifera continues in the third decade of September.
So, the L. tulipifera L. species can be recommended for use in landscaping under Absheron conditions.
