Hi all, I see there was already a discussion on this topic, but I just wanted to clarify a couple things.

So, Tulip trees are a type of Magnolia tree.
There are many types of Magnolia tree.
Tulip trees are sometimes referred to as Yellow Poplars, even though they aren't part of the Poplar family at all.

If anything there is wrong, please correct me. My mother was curious and I've been trying to separate the two types without much success. Also, what are other types of Magnolia trees? Are there different types of Tulip trees?

Thanks for any help you can give [Smile]

The poplar one, has beautiful
greenish/yellowish/orangeish type flowers..

They are very pretty..

My neighbor has one, and I marvel at it's
prettiness... delicate flowers...
and the leaves are what drew me to it in the first
place, different shaped..
we kept looking around to see where the leaves
were coming from......
