One of the tallest, straightest citizens of the Eastern Hardwood Forest, tulip tree enters its leaves in the woodsy pink dye category.
The words “a gold-colored dye is obtained from the bark” are repeated and repeated online, so much that I tried bark twice. And truly, a gold-colored dye does result. But it hardly showed up on the fabric at all. I didn’t even take a photo because it wasn’t worth trekking out to get a piece of bark for it. So. Tulip tree, pink leaves. Bark, not worth it.
