One of the most upright and stunning eastern hardwoods. The Tulip Tree has a straight trunk with big showy flowers that pop from each branch. These blooms are yellow-orange in color and resemble a cross between tulips and lilies. Nectar is produced by these flowers which bees love for honey production. Foliage will turn colors with the fall months transitioning from a green into a bright gold. Ideal for a lawn or large landscape to do its increasing size.
