Product Description

Unusual Leaves and Colorful Detail, Spring to Fall

Imagine visual interest from spring to fall with our fast-growing Tulip Poplar Tree. The Tulip is known for offering beauty across multiple seasons, its easy growth in an array of climates and its adaptability, from soil type to pest and disease resistance.

With the Tulip Poplar, you get the brightest tree on the block. In summer, the large, bright green leaves really stand out because they're shaped like tulips. And blooms begin to develop once your tree is established in your landscape, ending with a bright, glowing gold in fall.

But the best part? The Tulip's easy care. The Tulip Poplar is fairly tolerant of drought once established, highly resistant to insects and diseases, and adaptable to a variety of conditions. Plus, because we've planted and grown your Tulip Poplar for months ahead of shipping, you get healthful roots and well-developed branching.

We've put in the extra work so that you get the promise of month-to-month performance.

When purchasing your Tulip Poplar Trees from Brighter Blooms, you can rest assured that you'll get a healthy tree with an advanced root system. Our process ensures customers enjoy fast growth and beauty. Get vibrant dimension and hassle-free upkeep with our Tulip Poplar Tree today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Pick 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.

BB Tip: Drooping branches can be a sign of both over- and 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.
