An Award-Winning Street Tree
Do you have a challenging site for a tree? Perhaps it’s windy. Maybe it’s too wet or too dry. Does the tree need to live in the ‘hell-strip’ between the sidewalk and the street? How about a small patio yard in a big city? Are you concerned about smog or salt?
Well, the Greenspire® Linden (Tilia cordata 'Greenspire') is one of the most adaptable trees you’ll find. It is a fantastic shade tree with a strong, spire-like shape. It is very tidy and low-maintenance. It adapts to many different landscape situations, not minding the soil condition, as long as it is in full sun. Greenspire makes an excellent lawn or street specimen tree, and does great by a pool or deck.
One of Greenspire’s best assets is the fragrant yellow flowers that bloom in early summer when few other trees are in bloom. Then, the dark green heart-shaped leaves turn an outstanding gold in the fall.
This tree is such a great tree to grow that it is included on many cities “Best Trees” planting lists.
It has a strong central trunk, and nice high branches, starting to branch out at 6 feet above the ground. This makes it perfect for parking areas and parks, as well as your yard.
Add a Greenspire Linden to your landscape this year and don’t worry about that troublesome spot again.
