Product details

Tilia platyphyllos, known as Broad-Leaved Lime is a native classic tree that won the First Class Certificate in 1892.

Being a fast-growing tree, it reaches significant heights and widths at maturity. It has luscious foliage which gives the tree a healthy appearance all year round.

This tree has a roughly fissured bark which, unlike other Limes, tends not to sucker too much.

The leaves are circular in shape and dark green.

Like many Limes, this tree has a lime-yellow autumn colour and tends to lose its leaves early in the autumn period.

This tree is resilient and can withstand urban conditions, although it thrives best in rural settings. It can adapt to various soil types, including clay soils.

Tilia platyphyllos is a classic tree which has been widely planted on parkland, estates and avenues for many years in the UK.

It is tolerant of pruning and pollarding to maintain its shape or can be left alone to form statuesque specimens.

It is truly a great choice of avenue tree and certainly requires space to reach its full glory.

Mature height: 20m+
