Tulip Poplar

Bred by Jeffries Nurseries, the Skyfest is a fast growing, tall cottonwood with excellent disease resistance and adaptability to many kinds of soil. In the fall, its leaves turn a golden yellow.

This species has an aggressive root system, making it unsuitable for planting close to buildings but very drought resistant and an excellent choice for shelterbelts.

Tulip Poplar is the perfect shade tree for wide open spaces. It has a shallow and extensive root system, so ensure you give it space to grow. The attractive and showy, yellow-orange, tulip shaped flowers are where this tree gets its name.

Tulip Poplar is somewhat rare in Canada but highly sought after as it is difficult to grow. Does best in a moist, well-drained soil.
