Tilia

Lime Tree or Linden Tree. These noble trees with their handsome, glossy green foliage are ideal for large gardens, parks and avenues. Particularly suited to pollarding and pleaching due to their flexible, soft shoots. They will thrive in almost any soil except extremes of wet and dry.

The scent of lime tree flowers is said to have mythical hallucinary effects for those who fall asleep within their aroma may find themselves in fairy land.

Quality bee honey and tea are two bi-products of the flowers.

Its pale wood is often used for the making of many musical instruments.

Some special cultivars, such as Winter Orange, have incredibly, vibrant stems. Ideal for a winter garden.
