Accordingly, how long does it take for a tulip tree to bloom?

Tree Age. Once a sapling tulip tree reaches the age of 15 to 20 years old, it produces its first flowers. A sunny location promotes earlier and more flowers on branch tips compared to trees in shadier conditions. Tulip trees are long-lived, and they continue to bloom each late spring for as long as 200 years.
