Design Ideas: Tulip Tree is the consummate street tree for the West, although it has long been used in the East. Offers great fall color and eastern Oak-like character with no need for chilling. Plant as a disease-free, nearly litter-free candidate for the front or backyard. Makes a great long-lived avenue tree or a majestic statement alongside an entry drive. Approved by most city planning departments for parks, parkways and median planting.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.


Uses for the wood of this species caused it to be called "canoe tree" and "saddle tree" in pioneer times.
