Product details

Tilia cordata ‘Greenspire’ is a compact, neat and tidy clone of the classic Small Leaved Lime, Tilia cordata.

This tree has small and shiny heart-shaped leaves which are dark green on the surface and light green on the underside.

The creamy coloured, fragrant flowers appear in July and are a welcome addition to this attractive variety of native tree.

In the autumn time, the foliage turns a golden yellow.

Tilia cordata has a regular, pyramidal shape and maintains a strong central leader and evenly branched crown through to maturity.

The great benefit of planting a clonal selection of a native great is that you get consistency with each plant, the same height and shape can be expected from each tree planted and this is a great advantage when selecting trees for avenue planting.

This tree is a tough performer and will survive planting in a range of soil conditions, including heavy clay and urban conditions.

Tilia cordata ‘Greenspire’ is a clone which was selected from a Boston Park and has been in cultivation in the UK since the 1960’s.

A super tree for avenue planting, this versatile tree is a classic choice for parkland and larger gardens where space allows.

It can be maintained as a pollard or left to develop to larger proportions, given the limitations of the site.

It is not a good choice for pleaching as the branching structure is a little too ascending for this to be successful.

Mature height: 12-17m
