|It's Easy to Plant your Tulip Poplar
Specific Directions for Tulip Poplar
Your Tulip Poplar Tree will thrive in an area that receives full to partail sunlight. Although Tulip Poplars prefer full sun, they can tolerate shade. Plant your Tulip Poplar Trees about 10 feet apart for a privacy screen. Tulip Poplars can get 70 feet tall, and 30 to 40 feet wide so they need enough space to flourish. Flowers on a Tulip Poplar can take at least 5 years to flower.
Tulip Poplar Trees will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Keep your soil moist but not soggy or over saturated. Early in the Spring and once a month during the Summer fertilize your Tulip Poplar Tree with well balanced slow release fertilizer like formula 10-10-10 or 20-20-20.
Every Spring your Tulip Poplar Tree will provide you with beautiful bright yellow blooms. In the summer winged seed pods (Samaras) will grow, and drop in the fall. Also in the Fall the dark green leaves on your Tulip Poplar Tree will change to a bright yellow color to provide an amazing Fall show.
