Fragrant Yellow Flowers in Summer
The Glenleven Linden, Tilia flavescens 'Glenleven', is a hybrid between American and Little Leaf Linden. It is a fast growing tree with an extremely straight trunk and a pyramidal form (cone shaped).
Glenleven's green foliage turns yellow in the fall. This tree has a faster growth rate than other Little Leaf Lindens with a more open canopy that casts a moderate shade.
Glenleven is a prolific bloomer, with its small fragrant flowers appearing in late June and into July. Many bees are attracted to the flowers, and the dried flowers persist on the tree for some time.
The heart-shaped leaves are a cool dark green and the flowers are used for a soothing herbal tea, reported to have health benefits.
Lindens generally are very hardy trees, once established, and maintain their pyramidal shape easily without trimming. They are pollution tolerant and pH adaptable.
The Glenleven Linden grows 50 to 70 feet tall with a width of 40 to 50 feet; making them a great shade tree.
