Liriodendron tulipifera
Tulip Poplar

Liriodendron tulipifera - Tulip Poplar


Liriodendron tulipifera is a deciduous tree that is in the same family of plants as the Magnolias. This tree is native to the Eastern United States and will do best on a well-drained slightly acidic soil. The Tulip Poplar is vigorous and has a fast growth rate reaching 60-100' tall and with up to a 35-50' spread at maturity. When fully mature the Tulip Poplar will have a columnar to pyramidal growth habit. The leaves are saddle-shaped and will turn a bright yellow color before shedding in the fall. The greenish yellow flowers are what give this tree its name. They are tulip-shaped, 2" in diameter and bloom in late spring. Be patient with this one though, you may not see the flowers for up to 10-12 years. Liriodendron tulipifera may need supplemental irrigation during the heat of the summer as it is drought sensitive and can drop leaves.
