Silver Linden
Tilia tomentosa

Native to Europe and Asia, this linden has been introduced into the United States and Canada, where it is planted for its attractive, symmetrical form. The deciduous trees grow 20-35 m in height and produce clusters of pale yellow flowers in the summer. Its nectar contains sugars that cannot be digested by bumblebees, resulting in many comatose bees often observed on the ground beneath flowering trees.

Habitat:Planted as an ornamental, growing in full sun to part shade.
Growth Habit:Deciduous tree, growing up to 21 m tall.
Bloom Time:Late spring to early summer.
Presence in US:Not native to the US but widely cultivated.
Presence in Canada:ON
