I love the big yellow and orange flowers of the tulip poplar - the orange almost seems to glow! These are the tallest of eastern hardwoods.
Native from southern New England and New York westward to southern Michigan, and south to Louisiana and northern Florida. It prefers deep, rich, and rather moist soil.
