One of the finest and largest of the eastern American hardwoods, the Tulip Poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera) graces yards and gardens from coast to coast in the United States, also ranging up into Canada and down into Mexico. The Tulip Poplar commonly attains heights of 80 to 100 feet and trunk diameters of 2 to 5 feet, but can grow much larger and much taller — in fact, it is the tallest deciduous tree in America.
This impressive tree features an unmistakably unique leaf shape, wonderful, bright yellow fall colors, and showy and fragrant tulip-shaped summer flowers, by which the tree gets its name. While the Tulip Poplar is valued as a street, shade, or ornamental tree, it is also an important timber tree, whose wood is used for boat-building, furniture, and other purposes. It is also important to wildlife, attracting honeybees, butterflies, birds, and other wildlife with its spicy, aromatic fragrance. A member of the Magnolia family, the Tulip Poplar is the State Tree of Indiana and Tennessee.
