Tilia endochrysea

A recent and very exciting introduction from China. This lime has distinct foliage that emerges dark crimson, then expands to a deep green with a contrasting pale whitish-grey underside. Leaves are entire, shallowly lobed or dentate, especially on the upper half and flowers are seen in late summer. A tree to 20m in the wild, but could be smaller here; we shall see. Prone to late frost damage in certain gardens, but usually grows back strongly in my experience.

Pot size: 2L
