Liriodendron tulipifera, or Tulip Tree, is a wonderful, deciduous tree of pyramidal habit when young, and rounded when mature, with glossy green leaves with distinctive lobes, that turn vibrant golden-yellow in autumn. Lovely, tulip-shaped, yellowish-green flowers with orange at the base, bloom, usually high in the tree, in late spring and early summer. Flowers appear on mature trees, at least 12 to 15 years old. They are followed by cone-like fruit which persist on branches throughout the winter. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require much pruning. Liriodendron tulipifera prefers fertile, loose, slightly acidic, moist, well-drained soils. It thrives in full sun, but tolerates partial shade. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Tulip Tree is an attractive fast growing tree, perfect as a specimen plant or a shade tree, alone or planted in groups, popular for its beautiful, bright autumn foliage. Excellent for large woodland gardens. It is attractive to bees and hummingbirds.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
