LittleLeaf Linden Seed

    Description

    Latin Name: Tilia cordata

    DESCRIPTION

    Family: Malvaceae

    Native Range: Europe.

    Seed Source: Selected mature landscape trees in the town of Indian Head, Saskatchewan.

    Height and Spread: 12m x 10m (25 years).

    Overview: There are numerous vegetative propagated littleleaf linden cultivars available, however, seed propagated trees are rare. This seed strain is from selected open-pollinated landscape trees growing at Indian Head Saskatchewan. Using seed propagated trees increases diversity making a population more adaptable to changing environments and pests.

    Fruit: Small, round brown, or tan nutlet.

    Average number of seeds/packet: 75

    SEED TREATMENT / SOWING

    Stratification: Soak seeds in water for 24 hours, then stratify 90 days in moist sand at 20°C followed by 90 days at 5°C.

    Ideal sowing time: Spring (stratified seed) or fall (non-stratified). Spring sowing of unstratified seed will germinate the following spring.

    Sowing instructions: Sow 1.0 cm deep, 50 seeds/meter; Greenhouse - sow 3 seeds per cell.

    Growing conditions: Tolerates a variety of soils and a wide range of pH. Moderate drought tolerance and tolerates soil compaction.

    Agroforestry Value

    Littleleaf Linden has been widely planted because of its prunability, fragrant flowers, and dark shiny leaves. Littleleaf linden has all the features of a good urban tree: It is symmetrical, relatively pest-free, and tolerant of most growing conditions save for extreme drought and compaction.
