Mature Pleached Espalier Lime Tree (Tilia europaea ‘Pallida’)
Tilia × europaea, generally known as the common lime or common linden, is a large deciduous tree. The base of the trunk often features burrs and a dense mass of brushwood. The leaves are thinly hairy with tufts of denser hairs in the leaf vein axils.
Espalier Trees are forms that are pruned back to the main ‘arms’ every year. Their structure makes them ideal for creating divisions and boundaries in the garden. They can be used to accentuate the architectural lines of a design and give it depth, while maintaining an open and airy feel, since they block very little light.Learn more about Espalier Trees>
