LIVE PLANT/TREE SEEDLING TYPE: Tulip Poplar 8"-15" size range
Liriodendron tulipifera—known as the tulip tree, American tulip tree, tulipwood, tuliptree, tulip poplar, whitewood, fiddletree, and yellow-poplar—is the North American representative of the two-species genus Liriodendron, and the tallest eastern hardwood
Tulip poplars have a fast to medium rate of growth. They grow rapidly when they are young, but their rate of growth slows to a medium rate as they get older. A fast growth rate means more than 25 inches a year. A medium growth rate means 13 to 24 inches a year.
The tulip tree's flowers appear in late spring or early summer, usually sometime between May and June. The blooms last for a month or more. They are mostly yellow or sometimes green, but have an attractive orange band at the base of the petals.
How tall do tulip poplars get?
This tree is rapid growing, attaining heights of 80- 120 feet and a trunk diameter of 2 to 5 feet. Young trees have a pyramidal form. Tulip poplar is exacting in soil and moisture requirements
TAKING CARE OF YOUR NEW PLANT: Upon receipt, immediately soak roots in water for 2-3 hours then plant in your ideal location. Make sure to water daily, or as needed, if leaves look wilted and/or until it is established in it's new environment. Sometimes it is best to place in a 6"-8" pot of quality soil and let the root system get adjusted and strengthen, then transplant the hole pot of soil to your permanent location. Plants can get easily stressed when being relocated/shipped.
