For a wonderfully formal shade tree, the Redmond Linden tree (Tilia americana 'Redmond') offers a very sophisticated, uniformly triangular form as a young tree. As you might imagine, this is a valuable tree for street planting. In fact, it was voted Urban Tree of the Year by the Society of Municipal Arborists.
With a tall, straight trunk and elegant branch structure, a row of Redmond Lindens brings a marvelous appeal to any landscape.
With the largest leaf size of the Linden family, Redmond's dense foliage is glossy, dark green on top and lighter beneath. The leaves are heart-shaped and can be eight inches long and six inches wide. The sight and sound of the leaves fluttering in the slightest breeze helps to cool you down in the hot summer.
As the tree matures, it will develop into a striking specimen with an upright, oval canopy. In June, the trees produce abundant, two to three-inch wide clusters of very fragrant, light yellow blooms. You'll love the way they perfume your yard with a yummy, spicy scent.
For an autumn display, the leaves develop an attractive light yellow fall color. Local songbirds appreciate the shelter of these pretty trees, and they'll love to eat the small rounded nutlets formed from the flowers.
Big, bold, and easy to grow is what our plantsmen say about Redmond Linden. The dense, formal outline is just what everyone wants.
Landscape architects love them because of their cookie cutter' growth habit. No need for pruning to attain the naturally pyramidal shape. Redmond is a wonderful deciduous tree that does well in the urban landscape.

The Redmond's formal outline lends itself to be used as a specimen tree in a landscape. It can be used in the lawn, or as part of a large planting bed.
Redmond Linden are widely used on median plantings and as street trees where there is not a lot of road salt used. Try it in more formal applications as well. A pair of these trees make a wonderful sentinels flanking either side of the entrance to your home, or a large outdoor dining room.
Use one at the corner of your house to anchor a formal foundation planting. Plant at least 20 feet away from your exterior in order to have easy access for maintenance.
If you have the space, this tree makes a fabulous focal point. Use them in even rows to create a formal geometric pattern. Have fun planning this out and be brave to make the biggest splash. This is an eye-catching idea for commercial landscapes, as well.
Redmond can be planted in an allée, a formal planting spaced equally apart on either side of a walkway or drive. This easily elevates the experience of entering your home or business.
We've started to see a wonderful new trend in formal street planting that mixes different species together to protect critical biodiversity. Try alternating Redmond Linden with Bald Cypress and Baker's Blue Spruce. Use 3 trees of one species, then move to the next, and so on. Continue the planting pattern along the line. You'll love the look!
Redmond make dramatic backdrops and large-scale screening projects, in areas where needed. Use one in a higgledy-piggledy Cottage Garden to bring a fun sense of contrasting formal structure. It will look magical!
The creamy yellow-colored flower clusters help bees make fantastic honey. A common name for a Linden tree is a Basswood tree. Valuable Basswood honey fetches a premium price online and at farmer's markets.
Include several in naturalized Butterfly Gardens, and as a cash crop for honey production. If you have a fruit tree orchard, use a Linden tree on your property to support beneficial pollinators.
Plant in full sun for best results. Once established, the plant does grow quite fast.
Redmond Linden adapts to most soils, as long as it drains well after a rainfall. If you have poor drainage, plant in a raised bed or mounded heap of soil.
Don't plant Linden trees too deep. The soil line for the container should be level with your ground, or even slightly elevated above your native soil. Mulch the top of the root system to keep it cool and moist.
Give a moderate amount of water on a regular basis. This tree is easy to grow once the roots are established in your landscape. Pay careful attention to watering the first growing season.
Do any pruning in early spring, so the pruning cuts heal over quickly. Redmond is such a dense grower; it is a good idea from an early age to cut out any crossing branches. Your goal is to slightly thin out the interior of the tree for extra sunlight and air circulation.
You'll adore the handsome Redmond Linden with its lovely, large leaves and terrific shape. Order today!
