Tilia cordata (Lime). This tree has a compact form, with beautiful, fragrant flowers. The leaves are about 6cm long and dark green with a silvery underneath. The flowers are yellow, fragrant and grow in clusters in late spring and early summer. The fruit that follow are small and flimsy bracts rather like the maple.
