Large, smooth, tulip-shaped leaves turn yellow in the fall. Pale, yellow tulip-shaped flowers are produced in spring. Also known as tulip poplar and yellow poplar (but it is not a member of the poplar family), canoewood, saddle leaf tree and whitewood.
Tuliptrees prefer a temperate climate, sun or partial shade, and deep, fertile, well-drained and slightly acidic soil. They can become very large, so they are best suited for large, open spaces.
