Tilia cordata / Little Leaf Linden

Planting Points: It has shiny dark green leaves that turn a clear yellow in fall, and in summer it has dangling, fragrant pale-yellow flowers. Used widely by insect pollinators, a favorite of honeybees, and as a habitat for birds and mammals. Watch for aphids and Japanese beetles as they can be a problem. Little Leaf Linden is tolerant of pollution common to the urban landscape

Siting This Tree: Little-leaved linden is a great shade tree for lawns or parkway plantings in urban settings due to its ability to withstand polluted environments. It prefers moist, fertile, well- drained loams, but adapts to a wide range of soil conditions. The attractive dense foliage, low-branched and pyramidal to ovate form make the little leaf linden a great combination of ornamental and shade tree for the urban landscape.
