Basswood (American Linden)

Little Leaf Linden is a large, deciduous shade tree that is native to Europe. The leaves are heart shaped with fine teeth on the margins. It has much smaller leaves than Large 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.

Basswood, also known as American Linden, provides shade and fragrant flowers with characteristically attractive leaves and branching.

It typically has a large uniformly round crown with a straight branch free trunk.

Basswood is typically found along streams and lakes or at the bottom of slopes where the ground is moist.
