My partner and I were disassembling a greenhouse today at a commercial operation, and as I stared upward in exhaustion, I spied these flowers in the nearby trees.  Does anyone know what it is?  These large yellow flowers were everywhere in the canopy.

Ok, I identified the tree -- a Yellow Poplar, Liriodendron tulipifera, or also known as a Tulip Tree.  I'd never seen one before.

That would be a nice tree to have. I wonder if it grows as quickly as other poplars? It sure is pretty.

I have a few of those on my land--they are beautiful! And yes, Tulip Tree, or Tulip Poplar--I think they go by a lot of names.

Yes, it is a Tulip Poplar... sometimes called a Tulip Tree. These trees are some of the largest trees in this part of the country - they can approach 200 feet.

The flowers you see are loaded with nectar - sometimes as much as a tablespoon of nectar! The upright blooms are very strong and hold rain and dew.

This tree does grow very fast, has an upright habit, and makes a great landscaping tree - especially where you want a large tree fast!

Yeah it's clearly a Tulip Tree when you look at the shape of the leaves!
