Tilia petiolaris - Weeping Lime

Weeping Lime, Silver Pendant Lime

Syn. Tilia tomentosa 'petiolaris', is a magnificent large tree which has weeping branches rather than a weeping habit. The backs of its dark green leaves are fuzzy and white, turning the tree silver in a breeze. It grows to 70 feet tall and 40 feet wide - a tough tree with hanging clusters of small, pale yellow, fragrant flowers in summer. Its large bright green leaves have an attractive silver underside, often planted in older estates in the late 1800's of which many still remain. Loved by insects for the plentiful flowers, also putting on a beautiful Autumn show of fantastic buttery yellow, before the leaves fall to reveal the amazing structure of this tree.
