Small Leaf Lime (tilia cordata)

Small leaf lime (tilia cordata) is an excellent tree for avenue planting and gives good shade. Branches grow downwards, the leaves are dark green and shiny. July sees the scented greenish/yellow flowers form. Its fruit unlike that of other limes is not ribbed or hairy. It has nothing in common with citrus fruit but the name lime derives from the German word Linde which means lime. It is still used for the sounding boards and keys of pianos and organs because it does not warp. Another great British native tree.  Good for avenues, good shade.  Eventual height approx 18 meters.

Typically 50' to 60' (15m to 18m) tall


Full sun to light shade. Prefers moist, deep, fertile, well-drained soils but tolerant of difficult growing sites and soils. Urban and pollution tole
