Tulip Poplar can be used as a specimen tree on a large property it has great beauty and in fall, its foliage is spectacular. This fast growing tree is a large, stately deciduous tree that is a native tree to the eastern United States. As a fast growing shade tree, the Tulip Poplar can grow to heights of over 100 ft with trunk diameters of 4-6 ft not uncommon. While sometimes it takes a conical form, when grown in the open the Tulip Poplar often assumes a broad columnar shape that is its signature form. A choice flowering tree.
The distinctive cup-shaped yellow flowers are 1.5 in across and about 2 - 2.5 in length and really do resemble tulips. At the southern end of its range tulip poplar blooms in late spring to summer while in its northern range they'll appear later in summer. The handsome flowers are greenish-yellow with orange markings and are held at the branch tips where they can be best admired. Flowers are followed by a brown scaly cone-shaped fruit. The leaves are single square-lobed and are about 6" long. Tulip Poplar has moderate water requirements and a moderate tolerance for salt and alkali soils.
