Tulip Poplar Picture

Amazing and huge tulip-like orange and lime green showy flowers high in the canopy May through June belie the fact that this is not a true poplar at all - but rather a rapidly growing giant of the Magnolia family, the tallest native tree east of the Mississippi, upright cone-like seedheads persist into fall, distinctive 4-pointed waxy smooth leaves turn golden yellow in fall, grows very straight and tall, great nesting tree, nectar attracts hummingbirds and honey bees, host plant for Tuliptree Silkmoth (Callosamia angulifera) and EasternTiger Swallowtail (Papilio glaucus) caterpillars.
