Littleleaf Linden

Another tree is in bloom right now, it’s that sweet smell you probably get a hint of once in a while. It’s Littleleaf Linden, Tillia cordata, related to our native Basswood, Tillia americana. Here’s a picture of the bloom.

We’re home to the state’s largest Littleleaf Linden, by Warner Science.

    On of my favorite trees, Tim — thank you for letting me know that it’s in bloom!!!
    I love your blog. The trees and landscaping on campus have always been my favorite part of being there (when I am there; not there now due hiring freeze…). And it was neat to discover that you (finally?) got all the mapped trees on the Web, too!!
    Best- Susie
