Product details

Tilia europaea, known as European Common Lime, was a frequent choice for the Victorians as an avenue tree for parklands and estates which has now been superseded by more uniform and improved clones such as Tilia europaea Pallida.

Fast growing, it forms a broad crown at maturity and its lush green leaves turn a vivid yellow just before they fall in the autumn.

Tilia europaea is a tough tree, thriving on most soils, including those that keep wet for a month or so over the winter period.

Too big for gardens, it is best planted in parkland.

Mature height: 20m+
