Magnolia Tulip Tree of which I have two and mine are more like the bush type, are doing their best to bloom but we’ve had some very cold nights with frost that has burned the beautiful buds. I’m going to check to see if I need to do any trimming and talk to you about fertilizing.

The tulip tree, or Liriodendron tulipifera, was brought to Virginia by European settlers. It is hardy from Quebec to Texas and Florida. for watching! The Magnolia Tulip Tree stays a lot smaller with the plants around 10′-15′ and Magnolia Grandiflora can get 20′ to 50′.

  1. Thank you.
    I have one of these gorgeous trees in my front landscaping and I need to remove a few more limbs that are crossing.

    Your tree looks very healthy.

  2. My DIL has one of these and this spring, shoots came out from the roots. I would really like to propagate some of these. I pinched some off, trimmed some off and tried to dig some at the very edge of roots. I put some in water and some in dirt. None are doing well. Does anyone know how to start one of these? Her"s is beautifuL!

  3. Any chance you've grown new trees from the seed pods? I have some green ones that are falling off my tree but i have zero idea what to do with them. I would love to grown some new trees if possible. Any pointers would be greatly helpful.

  4. I have three of these and struggling with all. One struggles with a vine that nearly strangles that I have to cut every year. Only get a few buds. One had some type of disease I cut it back and the tree got healthy and a million new stems full of leaves. The last one barely get leaves or any blooms. I am considering doing a hard pruning but dont want to damage them. Zone 7 Maryland when do you suggest I prune. I just noticed that I had to bloomed tulips but the heavy rains wilted them.

  5. That's not what I know as a Tulip tree. A Tulip Tree is a type of magnolia, but that's not it. Yellow Poplar/Tulip Tree is a fast growing TALL hardwood tree with yellow tulip shaped flowers and large tulip shaped leaves. That looks much more like a Jane or Saucer Magnolia.

  6. Hello from Northern California. I REALLY need help. I think my potted tulip tree baby is dieing. Trunk is 7in around, and was almost 8ft tall, in a 10 gal pot. I had a long illness and it suffered neglect. ALL the branches and upper half of the trunk became dead wood. Basically where branches started growing from the trunk and up was dead wood. I removed everything dead 😢🤧 and am left with a 4ft bare trunk in a pot.. Any place I scratch the remaining trunk bark IS green underneath. Can it possibly come back from this state? PS. Planting in the ground is not an option for me. What do you think? Is there any hope for my little tree?

  7. I have one but night before last it got down to 29, she doesn't look so good. Tons of buds on her and now they look terrible. But like you said, the tree will survive. Your tree looks nice, mine is only about 6 foot.
