Tilia x europaea ‘Pallida’ forms a dense crown of ascending branches that takes a substantial conical shape as it matures. It has mid-green round leaves that have a more yellow-green underside. The conical shape is more of a neater form to the broader crown of Tilia x europaea. In June/July elongated creamy yellow flowers appear that are fragrant and highly attractive to bees and other beneficial pollinating insects. The younger twigs are reddish-brown in colour, as are the leaf buds. It is considered a large tree, growing to heights of 12m+ with a width of around 6-8m. Its most suited for planting in wide avenues or large open green spaces.
