If you’re looking for a stunning tree that grows quickly and doesn’t suffer from many pest problems, your search is over. The Tuliptree is beloved for its beauty. Its bright green leaves resemble tulip flowers. Magical greenish yellow six petal flowers with pleasantly aromatic stems appear in the early Summer followed by equally colorful seeds held upright in the tree throughout the Summer and into Fall. The Tuliptree is a wonderful shade tree and a provider for wildlife.
Tuliptrees provide food in many forms for many animals. In the Fall and Winter, young trees are browsed by whitetail deer and rabbits. The Spring flowers provide nectar for ruby-throated hummingbirds. Tuliptree seeds, maturing in Summer and persisting into Winter, provide food for both birds and mammals, including finches, cardinals, quail, mice, red squirrels, gray squirrels, and rabbits.
The Tuliptree is the state tree of Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee because of its majestic beauty. George Washington planted Tuliptrees at Mount Vernon which are now 140 feet tall and Daniel Boone favored the wood of this tree for his 60-foot dugout canoe.
