Sterling Silver Linden Tree

widely planted in urban areas because they are drought tolerant, durable and beautiful, and thrive is some of our toughest locations. Silver lindens can be large, up to 50 or more feet tall and up to two-thirds that width.  Cultivars will likely have more limited size and predictable form.  ‘Sterling’, ‘Green Mountain’ and ‘Szeleste’ are possibly the more popular silver lindens selections available.They get their name from the silvery white pubescent underside of the relatively large leaves.  A breeze through their crown will give the same effect of wind blowing through an aspen grove. The upper side of the leaf is a bright shiny dark green. Fall colors are not spectacular but a decent yellow like other lindens. The bark is light gray in youth.  As it ages, it becomes grayish-brown with deeper furrowed ridges.
