Product details

The Silver Lime is a handsome tree, but with a rather variable habit. Introduced in 1767 from its native South Eastern Europe, its flowers can be toxic to bees so this should be considered if planting in a rural setting.

A large tree of generally pyramidal habit, the Silver Lime has the advantages of being resistant to both aphids and drought.

It grows well in urban areas, although it requires plenty of space.

Its dark green leaves have silver-white undersides, creating a beautiful effect when rustled by the breeze.

Good for avenues and parks, it will also stand up well to salt-laden coastal winds.

Mature height: 17-22m
