Weeping Silver Lime Trees

The Weeping Silver Lime tree, Tilia tomentosa Petiolaris is a big specimen tree that has an impressive bell shaped canopy of sinuous branches that mostly begin to grow upright and then arch downwards as they mature, ending in a tall, weeping shape of hanging shoots growing from a strong, upright trunk: quite a sight to behold when mature. The canopy isn't very dense and casts quite light shade. The two-tone leaves flutter beautifully in the wind and the silvery, downy hairs on the undersides make them less attractive to aphids than most other lime varieties. The autumn colour is a pale, bright yellow. The flowers are gloriously scented, creamy white and open in mid-summer. Suitable for any fertile soil, especially heavy clay and it likes a bit of moisture at its feet. Looks wonderful planted by water. Weeping Silver Lime trees can reach a height of about 30 metres.

Did You Know? 

This tree was first identified in 1864 by Alphonse de Candolle, and was cultivated by nurseries from the 1880's. It holds an RHS Award of Garden Merit, although it is only suitable for planting where there is room. 

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.
