Tilia Europaea Euchlora or Crimean Lime was first introduced in 1860 from Germany. This deciduous tree is thought to be a hybrid of Tilia Cordata, native to much of Europe and the rare Tilia Dasystyla from the Crimea. Gardeners can be forgiven if confused as this is another hybrid with many names – it is often simply referred to as Tilia Euchlora and commonly also as the Caucasian Lime or Caucasian Linden.
Europaea Euchlora has a dense, oval crown, whose lower branches tend to droop as the tree matures. Young branches are a distinctive green. In late spring the glossy green green heart-shaped leaves, up to 10 cm long, emerge, followed in June and July by hanging umbels of fragrant, creamy-white flowers that have particularly abundant honey – in fact Euchlora is one of the best trees for bees. In autumn, the leaves turn a bright yellow for a vivid show until the end of October.
This variety is particularly aphid resistant.
Height and Spread of Tilia Europaea Euchlora Tilia Europaea Euchlora will reach a height of 10 metres after 10 years, growing to a mature height of 15-20 metres and spread of 6-10 metres.
How Hardy Is Tilia Europaea Euchlora? The Crimean Lime is fully hardy across the UK and northern Europe.
How to Use Tilia Europaea Euchlora Tilia Europaea Euchlora is a versatile landscaping tree which can be used in a variety of settings. Planted as a single specimen, it makes an excellent focal point in a lawn, where its glossy leaves, long-lasting flowers, and autumn colour will give a long season of interest. Planted as a row along a roadway or avenue, they will provide shade and act as a buffer from traffic. It is an excellent tree for inclusion in a wildlife or woodland garden, where its nectar-rich blossoms will attract bees and butterflies. Crimean Lime is also suitable for pruning and training into topiary forms such as roof, candelabra, espalier or pleached, for use either as an interesting garden accent or as a living screen.
How to Care for Tilia Europaea Euchlora Plant Crimean Lime in full sun or partial shade in an exposed or sheltered position with any aspect, in well-drained soil with a neutral or acid pH. It is drought-tolerant once established, and tolerates heat well. Tolerant of salt and wind, it is suitable for use in coastal regions. It is very tolerant of pollution and paving, making it a good choice in even inner-city locations. Crimean Lime is the most aphid-resistant of the Tilia species, eliminating the problem of messy aphid droppings. The lower branches can be pruned to retain the oval shape of the crown or for an espalier form.
