Linden, Littleleaf (Tilia cordata), packet of 20 seeds, organic
Family: Tilia (Tiliaceae)
Hardy to Zones 2 to 8
Deciduous tree to 70 feet tall, with a handsome, dense, round crown. Multi-purpose tree with substantial wildlife and pollinator value, producing copious nectar that is relished by bees. Tilia flower bracts make a delicious tea, often called “lime flower tea,” which has a sweet taste and a honeyed fragrance. Traditional usage (TWM): Hypertension. The plant prefers part shade to full sun and good, moist, loamy soil that is neutral in pH. Plant densely, 10 per gallon pot, 1/2 to 1 inch deep, tamp well and mulch with decomposed leaves, peat moss or coir. Sow seeds in fall, winter or very early spring for germ in spring. After the seedlings are sufficiently hardened off, transplant to individual gallon-size pots and grow on for at least a year before transplanting to landscape.
