Tilia cordata 'Greenspire'
Deer Resistant Icon

Plant Type: Deciduous Trees

The Greenspire Linden is very suitable for street planting. This 1998 Iowa Tree of the Year has a straight trunk, rich foliage and fragrant, pale yellow flowers. Greenspire’s leaves are distinctly heart-shaped with serrated edges, alternate, simple. This Linden has an oval shape, leathery dark green foliage and yellow fall color. It maintains a single leader with a nice branching habit, and with its strong central trunk, it gives the tree a broad pyramidal form. The impressive symmetrical shape makes it a good accent tree all year round.
