The name, although dating from 1903, might be invalid; moreover there has been ongoing doubt over whether this plant belongs to T. × europaea or T. americana (Santamour & McArdle 1985; Jablonski & Plietzsch 2013). Ancient Common Lime within the avenue at Bifrons Park, Kent. Tilia flowers are hermaphroditic.

A few of the ancient village limes of central Europe are Common Lime, such as one in the garden of Zámet, Velké Opatovice, Czech Republic, with the collapsed remains of a trunk about 3.5 m dbh in 2014 (monumentaltrees.com 2018). Trees can also suffer infestations of aphids, sap-sucking insects and gall mites, including the nail gall, and are occasionally affected by wilt, which can be fatal. Reviewing the causes of bee deaths on silver linden (Tilia tomentosa). Image John Grimshaw. and Huntley, J. P. (1981).

IV. The crown is densely clothed in rich glossy green leaves with paler undersides, up to 4 in. It is also widely cultivated in North America as a substitute for the native Tilia americana(American linden or basswood) which has a larger leaf, coarser in texture; there it has been renamed "Little-leaf Linden". Typically, these old trees develop large amounts of shoots from the base of the stem (‘epicormic shoots’), and the stem is highly fluted. Most of world follows Beowulf’s example and uses the name Linden, not Lime. The species is hermaphrodite (has both male and female organs) and is pollinated by Bees. 6-11cm, petiole 2.5-5cm, dark green above and below, hairy esp.om underside veins.

Taxonomy and distribution. Tilia cordata × Tilia platyphyllos Syn. (Castle Howard, North Yorkshire, March 2020). Latin tilia is cognate to Greek πτελέᾱ, ptelea, ‘elm tree’, τιλίαι, tiliai, ‘black poplar’, ultimately from a Proto-Indo-European word ptel-ei̯ā with a meaning of ‘broad’, perhaps ‘broad-leaved’ or similar. At the large scale, the distribution of Tilia is circumboreal, covering almost all of Europe south of the Arctic and all of China and Mongolia with a belt across the United States. Cymes of 7-9 flowers pendant among the leaves. Seeds are only fertile if produced in exceptionally hot summers (the British Isles are at the north-western limit of its range) (Piggot I), and then germinate in 3rd year after shedding (Rackham 2015). In general hybrids differ from T. cordata in their greater vigour, larger leaves, and pendulous inflorescence. Trees and Shrubs Hardy in the British Isles, vol. It seems that ‘Linden’ is a better name, and the one used by W Turner “the Father of English Botany” who wrote in 1562 “Lind Tree…groweth very plentuously in Essekes in a parke within two mile from Colichester”. There are many in the warmer parts of Scotland, some very old. ‘Ovedskloster’ (Sweden, 2005, from an 18th century avenue of Pallida Group) is similar (Jablonski & Plietzsch 2013). Tilia cordata Mill.

Because of its light colour, even grain and ease of working, lime wood has been used to manufacture a wide range of objects, and has been extensively used for artistic carving, such as those by Grinling Gibbons, though, because it is rather soft, not for woodcut printing. It is therefore possible that global warming will lead to an increase of Tilia seedlings. The dried flower, leaves, and wood are used for medicine.

Oval crown, pale green leaves and greenish-yellow shoots, selected by J. Timm and Co., Germany around 1930 (Jablonski & Plietzsch 2013). The name ‘lime’, possibly a corruption of ‘line’ originally from ‘lind’, has been in use for centuries and includes any species of Tilia. Tilia × europaea 'Hatfield' usually has several massive ascending trunks, achieving great height and forming a broad rounded crown, as here in the avenue at Castle Howard, North Yorkshire. Probably of Dutch origin, it was widely planted in British parks between about 1690 and 1720, sometimes mixed with ‘Pallida’ as in avenues at Hatfield House, Hertfordshire (Pigott 2012) and at Castle Howard, North Yorkshire (J. Grimshaw pers.comm 2020). Tilia cordata Miller, Tilia platyphyllos Scop., Tilia x vulgaris Heyne, flos or their mixtures . My interest in the genus is that Tilia cordata was one of the pioneer species in the British Isles after the last ice age, at one time formed extensive forests in England and Wales (but not in Scotland), and is still a characteristic species in ancient forests in parts of England and Wales.

Tilia × europaea, generally known as the common lime (British Isles) or common linden, is a naturally occurring hybrid between Tilia cordata (small-leaved lime) and Tilia platyphyllos (large-leaved lime). Most of the limes seen in Scotland are T. x europaea planted in avenues. Easiest to tell apart from small-leaved lime is to compare trunks of these two trees. New Phytologist 81 429-441. Distibuted by Dutch nurseries since the 16th century, it was widely planted in the Netherlands and may still be seen alongside many of the canals in Amsterdam, and exported to Germany, Sweden and probably elsewhere. The name ‘Lime’ is a strange one, as this genus is nothing to do with Citrus, the genus of limes and lemons.

These produce masses of epicormic shoots and have trunks that are typically expanded at the base and divide at 8–10 m into several vertical stems. Twigs are dull green, becoming red on the exposed side in winter. Easy propagation by layering, especially of the more ‘sprouty’ variants, means that a few clones have been extensively planted in Europe from the 17th century onwards, especially in towns and parks (Pigott 2012).

Tilia cordata has existed in the British Isles since at least 7500 BP (Birks 1989). at the northern limits of its geographical range. In general hybrids differ from T. cordata in their greater vigour, larger leaves, and pendulous inflorescence. The Discovery of the Native Flora of Britain & Ireland. The name Tilia × europaea covers all hybrids between T. cordata and T. platyphyllos, found in the wild where its parents grow together. Twigs red in sun during winter, becoming glabrous.

T. x europaea is widely planted but as a native it is now restricted to cliffs and screes in limestone districts, notably in the Derbyshire dales. A tree with few epicormic shoots, although it may produce some sprouts from the base. Variation among these hybrids is horticulturally very significant: clones differ in crown form and in their propensity to produce epicormic shoots. Image John Grimshaw. 2The hybrid is sometimes called Tilia x vulgaris. The Golden Lime was found in 1898 in Wrocław (Breslau), Poland (Santamour & McArdle 1985). (2007) recognised that there was a case, on molecular-genetic grounds, for merging Tiliaceae with Malvaceae, but decided to keep ten families separate within the core Malvales. Tilia cordata is the national tree of the Czech and Slovak republics, and its leaf is a national symbol of Slovenia. This large tree is quick to grow and forms a regular, pyramidal shape at maturity. There are other Tilia species found elsewhere and appearing in Britain as neophytes or garden specimens.
