Tulip Tree Description

Tulip Tree


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.


Other Names for the Liriodendron tulipifera


You might also hear Liriodendron tulipifera, called by several names--each referring to the same tree.


  •      Tulip Poplar
  •      Yellow Popular
  •      Yellow-Poplar


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.

    It is a slow grower which makes it hard on a impatient person, but once it showed its beauty I was thrilled!
