Description

Add beauty and aroma to your landscape by planting a Tulip Tree! Famous for its beautifully fragrant flowers that are tulip shaped. Bear in mind that it takes between 8 – 15 years for this tree to reach flowering maturity. This is a tall tree, so be sure to give it the space that it needs. The seeds of the tree are a great food source for birds and small wildlife. Tulip tree flowers attract bees and tiger swallowtail butterfly whose larvae feed on the leaves. This tree is native to the Carolinian Zone, and will grow best in the milder regions of Southern Ontario.

Note: This tree is hardy up to zone 4, but its native range begins in zone 5 (Carolinian zone).

Ontario Hardiness Zone: 4 to 7 (Find out your Hardiness Zone here)
