Comments: Silver Linden is pyramidal in form when young but develops an upright silhouette with an oval canopy as it ages. Used as lawn or shade tree where there is plenty of growing room. A good selection for parks, large commercial properites and possibly as a street tree. Seemingly well adapted to urban conditions. Foliage turns yellow in autumn. Has moderate drought tolerance.
