The American Linden is a large, fast-growing shade tree. It will be a happy addition to your yard with its tall, stately presence. As a hardy shade tree, you'll also enjoy its cooling proximity during those hot summer months.
It grows to 95 feet in height with a spread of 45 feet, substantial enough for a large landscape, but not too big for a more diminutive yard. Its superior use as a shade tree is clear not only in its stature but also in the large, heart shaped leaves that give a full effect to its spreading branches.
Beyond its shade and strength, your Linden tree will also provide some added color to your landscape. You'll soon come to associate spring with the clusters of aromatic yellow flowers that grace its branches.
