  • Description

    Tulip Poplar, also known as Yellow Poplar, Tulip Magnolia, Tulip Tree, Whitewood.

    This species is more closely related to magnolias than poplars. There are only two species in the genus Liriodendron, making it quite unique. Its native range covers Vermont through Texas. 


    Tulip poplars are best known for their shape, namely their leaves and flowers. They grow on a single trunk, with branches high off the ground. They grow faster than similar species. At 20 years, they are usually about 50 ft tall; their maximum height can reach up to 90 ft. They are a good ornamental shade tree, with a pyrimidal shape, yellow autumn foliage and good disease resistance.
