Tulip Poplar Tree Blooms
May 13, 2022 11:28am CST
Blooms from my Tulips Poplar tree in the backyard. I have two of these trees. And each year they seem to grow taller. This tree is the state tree for three states. Tennessee, Kentucky and Indiana. Very popular trees for sure. The birds enjoy these tulip shaped blooms as well. A cool fact is the trees are usually about 15 years old before the blooms appear. And these two trees have brought a lot of shade to the yard. I have bird baths under each of these. Enjoying the little things in my yard and garden. Have a good Friday. Photo is mine.

@CarolDM maybe I can research where in Indiana they are grown. If mostly in the southern part of the state then they might not do good here but if they're grown in the northern part that might be close enough to our weather. It looks like it might do fine here if the winter temps don't drop below -30 to often.
