Tree of the Week - May 10, 2005

Mature Silver Linden graces a garden.Silver LInden

Tilia tomentosa--Silver Linden 

Hardiness Zones: 4 to 7 
Height: 60 ft
Spread: 40 ft
Form: pyramidal 
Type: deciduous tree 
Annual Growth Rate: 12 to 18 inches 

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. 

These tiny flowers pack a big, fragrant punch!
