‘Green Mountain’ Silver Linden is a beautiful shade tree, with dark green leaves that have showy silver undersides. The oval silhouette is very regular, and makes a handsome street tree or specimen shade tree. Tilia tomentosa ‘Green Mountain’ blooms in July, producing plentiful inconspicuous flowers which have a lovely strong fragrance, very attractive to bees and pollinators. Silver Lindens have excellent tolerance of urban conditions, and good resistance to Japanese beetles and aphids. This is Dr. Michael Dirr’s favorite Tilia tomentosa. Introduced by William Flemer III.
