Tilia x euchlora: Bareroot Caucasian Lime Trees in Standard Sizes

The Caucasian Lime tree, Tilia x euchlora (previously Tilia x europea Euchlora) is a relatively small, bushy but still narrow Linden variety with lush, glossy green leaves. It makes a great screening tree and is suitable for most gardens.
Unlike other lime varieties, it 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.
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, which produce few seeds

They can reach a height of about 15-20 metres.

Delivery season: Lime trees are delivered bareroot during late autumn and winter, approximately November-March inclusive.
Choosing a size: Small trees are cheaper, easier to handle and more forgiving of less than ideal aftercare, so they are best for a big planting project. If instant impact is your priority, or if you are only buying a few plants for use in a place where it is convenient to water them well in their first year, then you may as well use bigger ones. All our bareroot trees are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Features:

  • Height: 15-20m
  • Soil: Any well drained, mildly acidic to alkaline soil.
  • Use: Wide avenues, parks, large gardens, coast
  • Colour: Yellow-cream flowers in June-July, strong aroma
  • Responds well to hard pruning
  • RHS Plants for Pollinators
  • Attracts few aphids
  • Bareroot delivery only: November-March

Growing Trees

Extremely tough and undemanding, they thrive best on alkaline soils, but mildly acidic soil is fine. They are happy in heavy, compacted clay with paving around them: a town planner's best friend.
They tolerate partial shade well, and are recommended for exposed locations; they won't grow right on the beach, but tolerate salt winds. When established, they are drought tolerant.

Limes respond very well to pruning, and are perfect for pollarding.

Did You Know?

This tree is sometimes known as the Crimean lime, but it is really a hybrid of the actual Crimean Lime, Tilia dasystyla, and our native Small Leaved Lime, Tilia cordata.
There have been scuffles between taxonomists in the car park about whether Euchlora should be a cultivar of Tilia × europaea, or a recognised hybrid (nothospecies, to be precise in this case), and they settled on Tilia × euchlora.

It was identified around 1860, and propagated by Booth's Nursery, Hamburg.

Standard trees are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level: their trunk's waist measurement. Unlike sapling trees and hedge plants, standards aren't measured by their height, which will vary quite a bit both between and within species.
So, a 6/8cm standard tree has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8cm and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10cm around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
On average, standard trees are 2-3.5 metres tall when they arrive, but we cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
