Tulip poplar


The tulip poplar, Liriodendron tulipifera, is one of the most common trees in the Carolina woods. It’s also one of the tallest. According to the Wikipedia article, it grows up to 165 feet tall in virgin Appalachian forests. I have a lot of them in my woods and around my house. These trees like a lot of light, so they do well at the edge of woods, or standing alone in the open.

These photos were taken from a ladder. The blooms are rarely found close to the ground.
