Linden - Glenleven
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.
Lindens are pH adaptable and pollution tolerant but prefer well drained soil.
The leaves are heart shaped and dark green. Lindens generally are very hardy trees, once established, and maintain their pyramidal shape easily without trimming.
Lindens are not considered drought tolerant but are an excellent choice for planting in irrigated turf areas.
