TILIA

Dense trees. Stately good looks, moderate growth rate. All have irregularly heart-shaped leaves and small, fragrant, yellowish-white flowers in drooping clusters in late spring, early summer. Flowers develop into nutlets, each with an attached papery bract. Best in deep, rich,moist soil. In cold-winter areas, fall color varies from negligible to good yellow. Young trees need shaping, older ones only corrective pruning. Aphids can cause honeydew, which drips disagreeably and encourages sooty mold.

Tilia x euchlora

Hybrid derived from Tilia cordata. To 25–35 ft. (perhaps eventually to 50 ft.) tall, almost as wide. Slightly pendulous branches. Rich glossy green leaves have paler undersides, reach 2–4 in. long and wide. Casts more open shade than T. cordata.
