OTHER: The Tulip Poplar Tree is a native of North America that is quite fantastic in many ways! This tree is so beloved, it is the state tree of Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. The Tulip Poplar does everything B-I-G …
Tulip Trees are fast growing, long lived, & can reach heights of 160’! They are insect & disease free, & deer & rabbit resistant. With lovely patterned trunks as large a 4-6' wide, they are a popular timber tree, & their wood is used in a multitude of ways. For these same reasons, they also make a wonderful shade tree.
Tulip Poplars are very ornamental. The young bark is reddish, & the trees are covered in dark red blooms in the winter. In spring, they all bloom into large showy 1 1/2" cup shaped flowers that are yellow & orange. The flowers turn in to attractive seed pods in the fall. The leaves of the Tulip Poplar are uniquely shaped, & measure up to 8" wide! They turn golden yellow in fall.
Liriodendron Tulipifera flowers produce large quantities of nectar for bees & butterflies. It is a major honey plant for honey bees, & it is a host for the Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly. The large nectar-filled blooms also attract HUMMINGBIRDS!
