Tulip Poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera)
Copyright: Fred Miller
Tall and straight-trunked, the Liriodendron is a stately and strong center of any landscape. Also known as the Tulip Tree, this landscape addition will bring color and life to your yard all year long.
In the spring, the green leaves are the shape of a child’s head and arms reaching out to hug you. In the summer, orange and yellow flowers bloom, attracting many butterflies. And in the fall, the leaves of the Tulip Poplar turn golden yellow. This tree will be a boon to your garden every month of the year.
