A rare tree, Tilia henryana has huge, ovate (shaped like an egg) leaves which are edged with bristle-like teeth and an eye-catching silvery-pink colour, as they unfold in spring. The second flush of growth, in late summer (called Lammas growth) is also silvery-pink and this contrasts beautifully with the mature green leaves.
Small clusters of creamy-white, fragrant flowers that are borne in profusion on mature plants in late summer. Tilia henryana is a lovely, slow growing garden tree.
Supplied Size: 2L square pots (approx 2 - 3 years old. 20 - 30 cm tall only) - this is our own selection, grafted from a parent plant in our arboretum which grows with a more upright and tree-like habit than most other Tilia henryana we have seen. Not instant gratification!
