A lime from the Eastern USA with big, bold foliage; a natural hybrid of T. caroliniana subsp. heterophylla and T. americana. In this country it makes a medium sized tree; quite striking on account of its very large, luxuriant, coarsely toothed leaves, which emerge heavily red flushed. Hardy, easy, though rarely seen in the UK. Young vigorous plants bear huge foliage. Expect a tree to 20m eventually.
