Product Description


Tilia cordata, commonly known as the littleleaf linden or small-leaved linden, is a lovely deciduous tree native to Europe and parts of Asia. It is esteemed for its graceful appearance, fragrant blossoms, and the shade it provides. Here's a brief description and some cultivation tips for Tilia cordata:

The littleleaf linden is a medium-sized tree that typically grows to a height of 60 to 80 feet (18 to 24 meters) with a pyramidal or rounded crown. Its heart-shaped, dark green leaves have serrated edges, and they turn a beautiful yellow-green in the fall. In early to mid-summer, the tree produces clusters of fragrant, pale yellow to cream-colored, small, and inconspicuous flowers that attract pollinators such as bees. These flowers give way to small, nut-like fruits that are not particularly showy. Littleleaf linden is a popular choice for urban and suburban landscapes due to its aesthetic appeal, shade-giving canopy, and adaptability to a variety of soil conditions.


  1. Location: Plant littleleaf linden in a location with full sun to partial shade. It prefers well-lit areas but can tolerate some shade.

  2. Soil: This tree is adaptable to a wide range of soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils. It thrives in well-draining soils but can tolerate moderately moist conditions.

  3. Watering: Once established, Tilia cordata is relatively drought-tolerant. Water regularly during the first couple of years after planting to help it establish a strong root system. Afterward, it can withstand periods of dryness.

  4. Pruning: Prune the tree as needed to maintain its shape and remove dead or damaged branches. Avoid heavy pruning, especially during the growing season, to minimize stress on the tree.

  5. Fertilization: In most cases, littleleaf linden doesn't require heavy fertilization. If necessary, apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring to promote healthy growth.

  6. Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the tree to conserve moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weed growth. Keep the mulch away from the trunk to prevent moisture-related issues.

  7. Pest and Disease Control: Littleleaf linden is generally resistant to most pests and diseases. However, monitor the tree for signs of stress or issues and address them promptly.

  8. Propagation: You can propagate Tilia cordata from seeds or hardwood cuttings. Seeds should be collected in the fall and sown in a well-draining medium.

  9. Air Pollution Tolerance: Littleleaf linden is known for its ability to withstand urban conditions, including pollution, making it a valuable choice for city streets and parks.

Tilia cordata is a charming and adaptable tree that can provide shade, beauty, and fragrance to your garden or landscape. With proper care, it can thrive in various environmental conditions and become a cherished addition to your outdoor space.
