A European lime tree, Tilia cordata 'Winter Orange' has young twigs which turn a vivid orange in autumn and stay this colour until the following spring. The cool green leaves turn butter yellow in autumn before falling.

Once the leaves have fallen, clusters of ivory white flowers appear in mid summer which are popular with bees. An unusual, colourful tree and a fine choice for avenue planting.
