How Standard Trees are Measured:
All the plants in the ornamental trees section are graded as standards, which means that they are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
Standard trees are 2 - 3.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us. We cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
General description of Crimean Lime trees:
Unlike other lime varieties, Tilia x euchlora does not attract many aphids, so you won't end up with all that sticky honeydew underneath the tree. It is also a fair bit smaller than its cousins, suitable for a medium sized garden and it produces few seeds. It has brilliant green leaves and drooping lower branches that tend to give the tree a cylindrical canopy down to ground level. This habit makes it an ideal tree for pleaching along wires - buy our ready to pleach lime trees for a headstart on this. The autumn colour is a pale, clean yellow.
Clusters of small, sweetly scented creamy-yellow flowers appear in mid-summer. The flowers appear to have a narcotic effect on insects and bees can often be seen sleeping off the effects on the ground nearby.
History & uses of Tilia euchlora
Also called the Caucasian Lime, this tree is a hybrid of the native Crimean Lime Tilia dasystyla and the Small Leaved Lime, Tilia cordata which is native here in Britain. It was identified in the latter half of the 1800's and propagated by Booth's Nursery, Hamburg.
