Tilia tomentosa Petiolaris is a large, elegant deciduous tree that won the Award of Garden Merit in 2002. It has large leaves which have a silvery-white underside, providing a contrast which move attractively in a breeze.
The Weeping Silver Lime produces clusters of yellowish flowers that are richly scented and the classic autumn colour gives a vivid display of yellows that appear in early autumn.
It tolerates most soils and will tolerate hard pruning.
It grows into a significant specimen at maturity at over 20m and is therefore best suited to parkland and very large gardens.
