This cultivar of the Small-leaved Lime is smaller leaved and a little neater than Greenspire.
This often overlooked variety is of lesser overall stature than ‘Greenspire’ but it can be considered neater, with the added bonus of a great and fragrant floral display in early summer.
Its branch angles are mechanically strong.
It was introduced into the UK in the early 1960s.
Ideal for urban plantings, streets and avenues, this medium tree has a dense, conical habit, and has very shiny, small leaves.
Its compact and uniform growing qualities make it ideal for avenue planting, but it is not as well known as Greenspire so rarely gets specified.
We rate this clone very highly and it thrives on most soils.
Mature height: 10-15m
