Little Leaf Linden

Easy-to-grow Sahde Tree with Great Fall Color

DenseThe Little Leaf Linden tree, 'Tilia cordata ', is a very good lawn shade tree and is ideally suited to home situations.  Its pyramidal to pyramidal-rounded shape and dense foliage make it an excellent landscape tree.

The leaves are glossy, dark green, heart-shaped and appear in spring,  turning yellow or yellow-green in the fall.  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, fragrant yellowish flowers appear in June.  Small, round seeds are also produced, and they persist well into winter.  

‘Little Leaf’ Linden is widely used as a street tree due to its rapid growth rate, and often for residential landscaping.  The ‘Little Leaf’ Linden is fairly tolerant to a wide range of site conditions and requires little maintenance.  It tolerates clay soils better than many tree species and is fairly tolerant of pollution.

The tree grows in sun or partial shade, and will tolerate alkaline soil if it is moist, and it transplants well; not particularly tolerant of drought.

‘Little Leaf’ has many fantastic attributes, and one of the best is that the leaves remain green on the tree long after other trees have shed!

* Pyramidal shape

Very happy Review by LD
Bought the 5-6 foot bare root. Very happy with what I got. It seemed packed well & was just under 7 feet after I planted it. I would buy from Nature Hills again.
Sap Review by Bobby K
Too much sap is coming off the leaves. You cannot park your car around this tree.
outstanding Review by Digger
One of the truly most beautiful trees. The rewards just keep coming when fall color time arrives. I happen to be the type of person that moves frequently, and with each move I plant another Littleleaf , or perhaps two.
Linden Review by Roger Ekstrom
I have a large Linden in the middle of my yard. It split down the middle of its 30" diameter trunk. A tree company cabeled the middle branches together and ran two 1" diameter bolts thru the trunk and pulled the split together. The trunk grew together again and the bark has covered the bolt heads and the cables on the upper braches were removed. Lots of leaves,ect. fall off of it all summer long but it is an excellent shade tree. They are very popular with Japaneese Beetles and need a June 1st spray by a professional with a sprayer powerful enough to hit the top branches. The beetles will strip the tree if left untreated.
