Product details

Tilia cordata Winter Orange has uniquely orangey red stems that glow firey orange throughout the winter. 

This beautiful tree is a new variety of the Small Leaved Lime Tilia cordata which was found as a seedling in the Netherlands in the 1970’s.

It has the characteristic heart shaped leaves of its parent which are lime green throughout the summer time.

Fragrant creamy white flowers appear in July. In the autumn time the leaves are early to turn and fall, at which point they become a bright buttery yellow.

Throughout the winter time this tree gives its most vivid display, when the red buds and orange shoots are the most prominent.

Tilia cordata Winter Orange is a medium to large tree with crown which is broadly oval at maturity.

Being part of the Lime family, it is a tough performer, tolerating the rigours of the urban environment and a range of soil conditions including clay.

This beautiful tree is a wonderful addition to planting schemes which require an injection of colour and can be accommodated in smaller gardens by treating as a pleach.

Pleaching involves training the tree onto a flame, to form a flat shape which can be managed with regular pruning and tying in.

This tree is a great candidate for such treatment, as the bright red stems are most prominent on new shoots; pruning promotes this.

Please see our seperate listing for our ready pleached Tilia cordata Winter Orange.

Mature height: 12-17m
