Tulip Poplar

The tulip poplar (Liriodendron Tulipifera) was designated as the state tree of Indiana in 1931. Also called yellow poplar or tulip tree, it can be found throughout the state of Indiana.

The tulip poplar leaf has a unique, distinct shape (it appears in the border of the Indiana state seal), and produces huge, bell-shaped greenish-yellow flowers in the spring. See State Trees for all 50 states.
