Little Leaf Linden
Ussurian Pear (Siberian)

Littleleaf Linden is a large, deciduous shade tree. Its unique, heart-shaped leaves have fine teeth on the margins and are much smaller than those of the Big Leaf Linden.

Its small, fragrant yellow-green flowers are said to have medicinal properties and can also be used to make honey. Littleleaf Linden is a great choice for a boulevard or large lot.

Ussurian Pear (aka Manchurian or Siberian Pear) is the most cold hardy of all pear species.

This self-pollinating pear bears white flowers in the spring and has good fall colour, making it an exceptional ornamental addition to any garden. However, it has a tendency to branch quite low and is often used in shelterbelts and hedges too.

Note: the fruit produced by this pear is rather mealy and not a choice edible. It is primarily grown for its attractive flowers and pollination of other pear varieties, or as cold hardy rootstock, but is an excellent addition to any shelterbelt.
