Tulip Tree 

The Tulip Tree (Liriodendron tulipifera) is quite an outstanding tree and not one you can miss at maturity. Easily reaching over 30m, you will need a large garden or park to accommodate. It has received the RHS Award Of Garden Merit for many outstanding attributes not because it used its size and weight to bully them into it.

As with many Tulip trees, it tolerates urban pollution and is well suited for parks and large ornamental town gardens. Its conical shape also lends itself well to ornamental settings. 

Although the Tulip Tree is native to America, it still grows well and fast in Britain.  This tree carries distincitvedark green  leaves, in the shape of a tulip, hence its name.  Autumn sees its foliage turning a stunning bright gold colour and the flowers will make a grand appearance in July. 

Tulip Tree Options Explained

7 litre: 120-150cm
12 Litre: 150-240cm 

Tulip Tree Soil And Planting
For best results plant in a full sun position with well draining soil as the Tulip tree really does not like to have its feet wet for any length of time. Although chalk tolerant best results will be had if planting in a more acidic soil. 

Pruning Tulip Trees (Liriodendron tulipifera)
Reasonably maintenance free in pruning terms although an occasional thinning will promote new growth. Definitely cut out and diseased, dead or crossing branches to maintain the health of the tree.  

Our Tulip trees are supplied at of height of between 1.20 and 2.40 metres and come in a container which means that the tree can be planted any time of the year and less risk of failure than either bare-root or rootballed trees.

Tree height is very dependent upon container size and time of year. A larger container should be taller than a Tulip tree in a smaller container. We grow from August to August and so the closer to August we get, the closer to maximum size you should receive.   

Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

 

Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

General Tulip Tree Information

This section used to be Brigadier Tulip Information but since being upgraded, we now call it General Tuplip Tree Information!

Tulip trees are long lived (up to 300 years), very ornamental and will tolerate urban pollution well making them very suitable for parks and urban planting. Tulip trees with an upright shape are suitable for roadside planting. Usually a medium to large tree meaning they will grow to around 6m at 10 years. They could go on to grow much more but this is dependant upon local weather and soil conditions. Heights of over 50m have been recorded. 

Most Tulip trees prefer a well draining site, will tolerate chalk but prefer acidic soil.

For those really into Tulip trees, you maybe interested to know that they are part of the Magnolia family. We are not sure if it was adopted or if there was some sordid affair between a Tulip and Magnolia many years ago. The flowers are a rich source of nectar and will attract bees to your garden.  Any fruits produced will last long into the winter. 

A hardwood tree with many uses because of its height and long length of clear trunk. The wood is light, straight grained, resists splitting and was the "tree of choice" for Native Americans to make canoes.

Useful as a shade tree because of its size and dense canopy. Younger Tulip trees can be fast growing reaching 30-100cm growth a year.
