As with the other basswoods, this one produces a pyramidal form as a young tree. The heart shaped leaves are dark green and shiny during the growing season. This tree grows best in a fertile, well drained soil in full sunlight although this baswood, as most, is tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions. It does well as a shade tree under city conditions. There are several special cultivars that may be better than the regular species. This linden cannot tolerate the hot humid conditions of the Lower South.
