Tulip Tree: Liriodendron tulipifera, or the tulip tree, is a North American native deciduous species many gardeners love because it grows faster than many other trees. It thrives in most regions in the contiguous United States.
The tulip tree attracts pollinators like bees, butterflies, songbirds, and small mammals—TN Nursery customers who love observing wildlife plant this tree to watch the buzz of activity.

The Tulip Tree Is an Easy-Care Species
The tulip tree is drought-resistant, deer-resistant, and easy to care for.
To ensure success, find a fully sunny spot to plant the tulip tree and give it enough "elbow room" to spread out as it grows.
During the earliest stages of development, enrich the soil with organic materials similar to what you'd expect to see on the floor of a fertile forest. Think shredded leaf litter, hardwood mulch, organic compost, or peat moss. Keep the area mulched with these materials to deliver nutrients to this tree--especially in the winter months in colder climate zones.
The Lovely Appearance of the Tulip Tree
The tulip tree is a tall, stately species that reaches a skyscraping height of up to 120 feet upon maturity, although they generally stay around 90 feet. The trunk is erect, and the tree can be up to six feet in diameter. The bark turns green to a warm brown and develops attractive furrows as it ages.
The leaves are about six inches long and four-lobed and alternate along the stems. The leaves are bright green on the top side and lighter green on the underside. They turn amber and bright yellow in the autumn.

Our trees arrived quickly, healthy and ready to plant. Trees were well packaged and true to size (3-4') as advertised. We are anxiously awaiting new leaves to burst out. TN Nursery customer service is on point! We've already placed a second order we are so pleased with product and service.
There was a concern as there was not much root on the tree. Planted it in moist soil and covered well to prevent freezing.
We also ordered 3 loblolly pine trees at the beginning of September and have heard nothing about when they will be shipped.
Trees arrived in good condition and taller than I expected. Thank you!!
We’re really grateful and appreciate you taking the time to share your rating with us, Barbara. We hope to see you shopping with us again!
The trees I got were bare root, but were packaged very well and were even showing signs of being ready to bud. I was very happy with what I bought
