Add beauty and aroma to your landscape by planting a Tulip Tree! Tulip Tree (Liriodendron tulipifera) is famous for its beautifully fragrant flowers. Bear in mind that it takes between 8 – 15 years for this tree to reach flowering maturity. Being that this species is the tallest tree of our forests, 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.
