Tilia Europaea Pallida

Tilia x europaea Pallida, the Linden tree, is is a cultivar of the Common Lime tree with yellow lustre to the newer branches and tidier, pyramidal habit. It bears small, scented, creamy flowers in early summer which have a specially formed leaf hanging down next to them that spins round like a struggling helicopter when the mature seeds fall, carrying them a bit farther from their parent tree. It is neater and more upright than the Common Lime (which is planted in woods and parkland all over the UK). It is suitable for any reasonably fertile soil and thrives in polluted urban areas. Lindens can reach a height of about 30-35 metres but are one of the best trees for pollarding and so are suitable for smaller gardens and for using as screening trees.

History & uses of Kaiser Linden (meaning the King's Lime), this tree is adored by street planners worldwide for its upright growth, immunity to air pollution and tolerance of harsh pruning, even by unskilled workers. There is a street in Berlin dedicated to this tree called Unter den Linden, which means "Under the Linden Trees".

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.
