  • Attracts Bees

The Tulip Tree (Liriodendron tulipifera) is definitely a tree to plant for the long term. The allure of a tree with tulip-like flowers is strong; even though it can take 20 years before the large green and orange tulip-shaped flowers appear they are worth the wait! But there are plenty of other reasons to grow this ornamental tree.

When the tree is young, the distinctively shaped, glossy leaves are the tulip tree’s main attraction; they open bright green before turning brilliant yellow in autumn.

Liriodendron tulipifera is an ancient species of tree that belongs to the same plant family as magnolias. This tree grows fast, and eventually becomes very large, so site it with care.

If it is not possible to plant because soil is waterlogged or frozen keep the trees somewhere frost free and airy. Keep the roots just moist by storing them in damp compost or if outside conditions allow, heel the trees in to a patch of bare ground until you’re ready to plant them into their permanent positions.
