Tilia tomentosa

Silver linden is a beautiful large shade tree that can grow 50’ to 70’ tall. It is quite tolerant of high pH soils and urban conditions and is more heat tolerant than other lindens making it a great street or shade tree for large yards in Oklahoma. Leaves of silver linden are dark green on the upper surface and silvery beneath, providing an interesting effect when the wind blows; leaves can have a nice yellow fall color. Tiny, fragrant, white, flowers attract bees in late June to July. Cultivars selected for brilliant fall color as well as outstanding performance are available.
