Tulip Poplar Seedlings Description

Tulip Poplar Seedlings 

The Tulip Poplar Seeding, known as Liriodendron tulipifera, is also called yellow poplar.

This tree gets its name from the classic tulip-shaped flower it bears. Native to Eastern North America. Tulip Poplars are deciduous trees that grow tall and straight, creating a narrow crown that spreads as the tree matures. These fast-growing trees bear flowers that show yellowish-green on the inside petals, with a hint of orange on the outside. Smooth green broad-lobed leaves change to a vivid golden yellow in fall, while the bark is burl-like, showing a gray-brown color with furrowed ridges. The Tulip Poplars'cone-like fruit blooms create magnificent ornamental value in your garden sanctuary. Tulip Poplar cones grow from 8-115' high and 7-88' wide. This tree is best planted in early spring once the final frost of the season has passed.

Care and Maintenance

A perennial that is terrific for more significant landscapes, the Tulip Poplar grows to more than 60 feet high and 15 feet wide, growing more than 25 inches per year in the right conditions. Plant in moist, rich soil and full sun for best results, although this tree will thrive in partial sun. The Tulip Tree creates dense foliage, providing a canopy effect as a shade tree. This tree is resistant to insects and fungus since it can tolerate poor soils, shade, and drought. The Tulip Tree requires occasional pruning to maintain its top shape. These trees prefer somewhat acidic, well-drained, deep soil mixed with compost. Tulip Poplars can do best in soil that does not hold water for too long such as loamy, clay, or sandy soil. Once planted, water your Tulip Poplar regularly, especially during hot spells or if leaves begin to drop earlier than the fall season.


In the spring, the tulip tree draws many pollinators, including hummingbirds and bees, to the nectar of its flowers. In addition, small mammals and birds such as rabbits, squirrels, and bobwhites will feed on the residue of the Tulip Poplar.

Plant your Tulip Poplar Seedling in a group or singly to create a stunning focal point in your garden landscape. Then sit back and enjoy its seasonal gift of flowers while watching some serious bird and bee.
