Tilia japonica 'Ernest Wilson' is perhaps the most freely flowering lime with even young plants bearing clusters of pendant, ivory-white, scented flowers in abundance in mid-summer. The flowers of a specimen in our own arboretum fill the air around it with its delightful scent.

The leaves are light green, heart-shaped, quite coarsely toothed and in a good autumn turn to shades of rich mustard-yellow. A lovely and unusual tree suitable for most gardens and woodland areas.
