Full Description

Easy to Care for Tulip Poplar Trees

Tulip Poplar Tree has only a 4 lobed leaf, giving the tree a beautifully unique and almost odd appearance. Tulip Poplars trees grow rather rapidly if planted in good moist soil and are one of the tallest naturally growing trees in the Eastern U.S. The tulip-shaped flower is yellow with a touch of green in the six petals. The Tulip Poplar Tree is a tall, fast-growing shade tree that forms a symmetrical pyramid.


Planting Information

We suggest when planting your newly purchased Tulip Poplar Tree plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Tulip Poplar Tree to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Watering Tulip Poplar Tree: After back filling and lightly compacting the 50/50 mix of existing soil and compost give the Tulip Poplar Tree a good deep watering. This is not to be rushed. Most of the water you put on the plant at first will run away from the plant until the soil is soaked. A general rule of thumb is to count to 5 for every one gallon of pot size. For example a one gallon pot would be watered until you count to 5 a three gallon pot would be 15 and so on. Check the plant daily for the first week or so and then every other day there after. Water using the counting method for the first few weeks.
