Is This a Fig Plant?

F27TWOctober 20, 2013

Just found this growing outside behind my AC unit on my patio.

My partner swears its a weed, but I say its a Fig ... who's right?

And if it IS a fig, what do I do next? I live in CT and would love to keep it growing!

Thanks for any help!

No...it's a 'Tulip Tree' (Liriodendron tulipifera) a relative to Magnolias.

Frank is correct, you will have to get figs elsewhere :)
