 Tulip Tree is native to the Chicago area but does well in natural Illinois.

The species' only horticultural use is as an ornamental tree. The tuliptree requires frost-free, incredibly moist soil typical of most prairies and savannas. It produces abundant bloom in the spring and early summer and then bears showy, fragrant flowers late spring into early summer. It can be selected for its slender profile. Its mounded form can also be used to create both formal and informal spaces by pruning, shaping, and planting accent trees. Tulip trees are commonly planted as a backdrop or focal point, planting in groups or singly.

Tulip Tree is the most famous landscape tree in the Southeastern region.

It has showy, exotic, goblet-shaped flowers and dark green, thin leaves with a rich gold fall color, making it a popular choice for public parks and home gardens. Its dense foliage provides a canopy effect and makes it an excellent choice for shade or sun. The bark is gray-brown and is somewhat furrowed in long ridges. The Tulip Tree shows excellent resistance to insect pests and fungal diseases, tolerating poor soils, drought, and shade. The tree should be pruned occasionally or allowed to grow on its own to maintain top shape.

The tuliptree has a rich, burl-like bark. These acorns are large, up to seven inches long, and attach firmly to fibrous root systems.
