American Sentry® Linden
American Sentry® Linden is a hardy, native selection. Its desirable symmetrical form lends itself to the landscape and parkways. Small, perfumy yellow flowers adorn the tree in late spring and its medium green, heart-shaped leaves turn a warm yellow in the fall.
Why it rocks:
American Sentry® Linden is a native selection that is tough and has proven to be very adaptable in the ever-changing Chicago climate. This tree has a striking symmetrical form with strong branching. Its medium green, heart-shaped leaves will turn yellow in the fall. Late springtime brings a sweet treat— fragrant yellow flowers that appear after all the other flowering trees are done blooming.
Where to put it:
Because of its desirable symmetrical form, American Sentry® Linden can be used almost anywhere in the landscape but it's particularly beautiful lining parkways, or in street medians. This tree should be planted at least 15ft from buildings and makes an excellent lawn or street specimen, great by a pool or deck.
What it needs:
American Sentry® Linden is an extremely tolerant tree, tolerant of cold Chicago area winters, alkaline soil, dry and wet sites. This is a hardy native selection that can grow in almost any condition. Be sure to follow our watering guidelines for the first few growing seasons until the root system is well-established.
