Emerald City® Tulip Poplar is a new cultivar prized for its uniformity and deeper green, tremendous foliage. The leaf is darker than is typical; as the picture demonstrates. The habit is a bit more compact than the species, resulting in a firmly upright tree. Foliage is slightly glossy. The entire package is a good improvement over seedlings.
