Comments: Silver Linden has dark green glossy foliage with silvery lower surfaces. They shimmer in the wind, showing off their shiny undersurfaces. It tolerates heat and drought, making it a great street tree where pavement reflects sunlight, or a good candidate for sandy yards. Its small clusters of creamy yellow flowers provide fragrance in early summer. The fall color is yellow.
