Why Tulip Poplar Trees?
Imagine leaving for work one morning during spring: before you leave, you notice 3 to 4 small blooms on your tree. When you come home that evening, that same tree is covered in a blanket of richly-hued florals. With the Tulip Poplar, a dazzling production and fast growth are not only possible but expected.
You'll have the brightest tree in the neighborhood. And though it takes the blooms some time to develop (10 to 15 years), they're unmatched. Even better? During the summer, you'll have a fast-growing, well-formed green shade tree. When fall arrives, the Tulip's leaves turn to bright yellow for a dazzling show. So, our Tulip Poplar merges the best of both worlds.

Customer Reviews & Photos
We purchased a 5-foot Tulip Poplar here back in 2013. It is a healthy tree, and we do like it. However, it has never produced the predicted blooms...nor has it ever turned gold in the fall. Perhaps the extreme Texas heat prevents it reaching its potential. We are Zone 7 (north central texas). As you can see from the healthy St. Augustine grass around it (a thirsty grass)...it gets plenty of water. Nonetheless, in late July, the large leaves begin to scorch...and by early August, they start falling off. By more temperate temps in September, it has no leaves remaining. While it hasn't been the tree we hoped, it is still a lovely tree in the spring, and we do love its large, full leaves. I don't know that I would recommend it for Zone 7, but for cooler zones, I suspect it's a great tree.
Arrived in good condition and was packaged very well and is very healthy.
It was planted as soon as it arrived, and the leaves are coming out on it now. Hope it continues to leaf out.
It was so easy! While, I was/am unable to go anywhere, because of quarantine, I thought I would plant a tree—to remember this season in our lives. I wanted a way to look back and say life continues on… so, fast growing trees was able to deliver for me a Tulip Poplar tree with one easy click. The tree arrived on time and it was in great shape. The tree is blooming—each day it is a reminder that there is hope. I would highly recommend anyone ordering through fastgrowingtrees.com
We ordered 2 tulip poplar trees. They came in great condition. We planted them and they are leafing out so good. Can't wait to see how much they grow.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location with well-drained soil and partial sun to full sun (about 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day - but avoid areas with harsh afternoon sun). When you're ready to plant, dig a large hole to make plenty of room for the roots. The hole should be twice the width of your tree’s root system and just as deep.
Plant your tree so that the roots of the tree are covered and the stem is above ground level. Finally, water to settle and mulch around the tree to preserve moisture.
2. Watering: Young Tulip Poplars should be watered during extended dry spells, particularly in the summer months. Generally, you should water about once or twice weekly during hot, dry weather and once or twice bi-weekly in cooler months.
FGT Tip: Drooping branches are a sign of both over- or under-watering.
3. Fertilizing: Use only slow-release, 10-10-10 or 20-20-20 fertilizer tablets for the first growing season. Fertilize twice a month when the tree is coming out of dormancy, then once a month during the summer. Stop fertilizing before the tree goes back into dormancy.
4. Pruning: Remove any branches that are growing outside of the designated planting area. To cut a branch, make a cut right next to the branch collar. The branch collar is the swelling that attaches the branch to the trunk. Remove any competing leaders as well.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
