Silver Linden

Tilia tomentosa Moench – Malvaceae – cotton family

Silver linden is a Eurasian species that is rare on the tree lawns of Albion that we have sampled.  The silvery undersurfaces of the leaves are the basis for the common name.

In Albion, this species flowers in late June and early July.

There are several trees along Michigan Avenue on the S side of the street near Albion Medical Professionals.
