Tulip Tree Seeds
Date: Around 1999
Where can you buy seeds for the "tulip Tree"??? I have
been unable to locate a source on the net or anywhere else. I would
really appreciate your help. Thank you.
yellow poplar or tulip tree = Liriodendron tulipifera
Here's one site out of many:
Anthony R. Brach, Ph.D.
Try a web search on "Mount Vernon", which was the home of George Washington,
near Washington, DC. There are a few tulip poplars which he himself
planted, and work has been done to pollinate those trees and obtain seeds
from them. You could probably order them by mail. If you do a web search
you should be able to find an email address, phone number, or regular mail
address to ask how you might order some of the seeds.
Thank you, good luck in your search.
Thanks for using NEWTON!
