Big Beauty for Small Spaces

This well-proportioned miniature comes from Tennessee's beautiful state tree, the Tulip Poplar, so its nickname is 'Little Volunteer'. The all-American gem is native to the eastern USA and grows just one-third the size of its relative: 35 feet tall and 20 feet wide.

Benefit from Instant Curb Appeal

Because of its small stature, the miniature Tulip Poplar is ideal for landscaping in city front yards, back yards and gardens. You'll appreciate how it doesn't dominate visitors' view of your home. No matter where you decide to plant the Little Volunteer, you'll benefit from all the best features of a large tree adapted to a smaller size.

A Convenient and Easy-Going Grower
This tulip poplar is known to "keep its branches to itself" and maintain its central leader better than similar varieties. The tidy, upright habit means less fuss, with ascending branches that don't require much pruning. As your tree matures, it won't extend its branches close to your windows and siding.

Plant this tree in moist, well-drained soil and watch it grow up to 12 feet tall and six feet wide in its first four years.

Superior Foliage, Without Much Fall Cleanup

This poplar's leaves look like silhouettes of violins and are very handsome close up. Its deep green leaves change to a soft, butter yellow in the fall. As the leaves begin to fall during the autumn months, you’ll appreciate your Little Volunteer tulip poplar because raking is never as much work when you're cleaning up after a miniature tree! It won't have you toiling over enormous piles of heavy foliage.

Yearly Flowers Add Visual Interest

Blooming between May and June each year, the Tulip Poplar's abundant flowers are yellow backed by deep orange bands. Look out the window at the nectar-rich flowers and be reminded that great beauty can sprout from places that were once just ordinary.
