Large Leaf Linden
Manchurian Walnut

Large Leaf Linden is a tall, deciduous tree native to Europe. Large Leaf Linden features oblong leaves that turn from yellow-green to brilliant yellow in the fall. Large Leaf Linden is ideal as a shade or ornamental tree in a larger yard.

Manchurian Walnut is a large, broad and often multi-stemmed tree with ornamental qualities. This tree produces large, thick-shelled nuts that ripen in the fall. These edible walnuts are reportedly difficult to crack open. They are useful for attracting wildlife, especially squirrels.

The Manchurian Walnut contains and exudes much lesser quantities of allelopathic compounds, such as juglone (common to walnuts), that may prevent or impair growth of nearby plants. Therefore, it is commonly embraced as a safe walnut to plant.
