Classic Shade Tree that Smells Great


You’re not looking for showy flowers. You’re not looking for high-maintenance. You’re looking for a classically shaped tree to give you some shade in the summer. A tree that keeps looking good without pruning and doesn’t require any upkeep on your weekends. Let us introduce you to the Little Leaf Linden tree (Tilia cordata).


This tree has been a staple in American neighborhoods for generations and in European streetscapes for centuries. Naturally shaped like a rounded pyramid and growing to a manageable 40 feet high, it adds a definite sense of scale and proportion to your yard.


The glossy, dark green leaves are heart-shaped and grow densely, making this an exceptional shade tree. 


As a rule, shade trees don't have very interesting flowers or a scent, but this hardy ‘Little Leaf’ Linden is the exception to the rule! The small yellowish flowers appear in June and smell wonderful. Small, round seeds are also produced, and they persist well into winter and the leaves stay green on the tree longer than many others.


The Little Leaf Linden tolerates all kinds of soils, including clay. It also laughs off pollution better than most, which is why it makes such a great street tree. It’s a perfect tree for urban gardens. 


Nature Hills Nursery sells top quality Little Leaf Lindens. They grow quickly and will provide the shade you crave in no time. Don’t wait to order! These beauties sell quickly.
