I planted a tulip tree in my front yard about 6 years ago. The tree was approximately 7 years old when I planted it. I have yet to see flower blooms. Also, living in Traverse City (northern part of the lower penninsula of Michigan), I realize I am more north than this tree usually grows, but it has done well, so far. Two days ago, we had a severe frost, and now I notice all the new leaves coming in have died. Will this tree recover? When might it bloom? Thank you... Sue

I am searching for a tree to plant in my front lawn for shade. We live in Anaheim Hills, Southern California. I noticed a beautiful and healthy tulip tree now in bloom centered in the Orange Circle of Old Town Orange. Would this tree provide enough shade for our family in the long summer months? A desiduous tree, when does it lose its leaves and how long does it stay dormant? Is it really messy (like a mimosa tree)...though is it worth it? Are there unsightly pods like the royal empress tree? Is the foliage lush green? Your photos are gorgeous, and I would love to have this tree.
