Growth habit

The Liriodendron tulipifera 'Fastigiatum', also known as the Columnar Tulip Tree, is a fast-growing tree. The tree has a narrow, columnar growth with relatively upright lateral branches.


Branches and trunk

The young branches are green and turn reddish-brown over time. The trunk is gray and relatively smooth. With age, small grooves can develop in the trunk.



The Columnar Tulip Tree only blooms in June-July with beautiful yellow flowers. The flowers are speckled orange on the underside. The flower resembles a tulip, which is why the tree gets its name.


Leaf shape

The leaves of the Liriodendron tulipifera 'Fastigiatum' are green with four lobes and are about 8 to 15 cm wide.


Autumn coloration

In autumn, the leaves turn yellow to brown before falling from the tree. This colorful change contributes to a beautiful autumn scene and is a focal point in your garden.



Thrives on almost all well-draining, nutritious soils and is also wind-resistant. The best location for this tulip tree is in full sun or partial shade.


How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
