A very reliable shade tree, even for difficult conditions. Tolerates a very wide range of soil condition. Linden trees have very flexible wood making them and excellent choice for open windy areas. Not bothered by most common tree pests. Fairly fast growing. Slender, upturned branches create a dense, uniform crown with a conical outline. Tiny, yellow, fragrant flowers appear in early summer and small, heart-shaped, green leaves turn yellow in fall.
