Tilia americana ‘Redmond’ – Redmond Linden Tree


Botanical Name: Tilia americana ‘Redmond’

Alternate Name: Redmond American Linden, American Basswood, Tilia x euchlora

The Redmond Linden tree (Tilia americana ‘Redmond’) is a medium to large sized deciduous tree with a pyramidal growth habit and dense canopy of glossy green leaves. It makes a great addition to the landscape, providing both shade and seasonal interest. It is native to some regions of the  midwest, including the Ohio River Valley and parts of the Appalachian Mountains in Tennessee and North Carolina. This tree can also be found growing in parts of Manitoba and Quebec, Canada.  It grows to a height of 40-45 feet with a spread of 25-30 feet.

The leaves of Redmond Linden tree are slightly smaller than the species but have the signature linden tree heart shape. They can grow up to 8 inches long and 6 inches wide. They are light to medium green with coarsely serrated margins and flutter in the breeze. In the fall, the foliage turns a beautiful pale yellow.

The Redmond Linden tree produces stunning, showy clusters of tiny, pale yellow, fragrant flowers that cover the canopy in June. The fruits that follow are rounded nutlets that are enjoyed by song birds.

No serious disease or insect problems but powdery mildew and verticillium wilt can occur. Intolerant of pollution and urban conditions. Attractive to butterflies and honey bees.
