Q.Question about planting a tulip poplar in a pot

Zone 23452 | Anonymous added on September 5, 2019 | Answered

I’d like to plant a tulip poplar in a large pot outside versus in the ground. What size pot should I get? Can it stay outside during the winter? How big will it get in the pot? And will it live a long time above ground in a pot?
