Poplar - TulipLiriodendron tulipifera
USDA Hardiness Zones: 4-9
Native to North America, the Tulip Poplar Tree is so captivating year-round that George Washington had two planted in his front yard at Mount Vernon in 1785. It still draws a crowd to this day and for good reason. The spring brings big beautiful yellow blossoms that stand out against the tulip shaped, luscious green leaves and the fall produces a breathtaking display of golden yellow foliage. This fast growing shade tree is in the same family as the magnolia but will grow in colder climates unlike its sister. At maturity its height can reach up to 70 ft with a canopy of 30-40 ft. They are a low-maintenance ornamental trees that have few disease and pest problems and can adapt to many climates and growing conditions. Hardy in USDA Zones 4-9.

How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
