From Question and Answer Forums: What are others saying about this plant?
I would like to know where I can buy a Tulip Tree in Cincinnati. There are several nurseries / landscapers, but not sure which ones would have these trees.
Hello,Id like to buy a 5-6 foot or taller Tulip Tree locally in Cincinnati, OH. Do you know where I can find oneThank you,Cynthia
Try Dave Weltzers place, County Line Nursery. The nursery is located just outside of Oxford. I purchased a tulip poplar from him in 2009 and it is doing really well. I have since purchased dozens of trees, shrubs and perennials from him and have been very pleased. I can count on the plants being healthy and vigorous every time.
