The Emerald City Tulip Tree is a commercially developed cultivar of the Missouri native Tulip Tree. It was created to be cold-tolerable and stand straight, making it suitable for city sized landscapes. The trees grow to be 55′ tall and 25′ wide. The foliage is an attractive glossy dark green. The trunk develops furrowed fissures as they reach maturity. Tree #88 was planted in a triad with two other Emerald City Tulip trees.
