An extremely uniform grower, Sweet Street™ Linden is a selection found by Darrell Kromm of Reesville Ridge Nursery in Reeseville, WI. Favored for its tight, pyramidal habit, it has lustrous dark-green leaves that persist late into the season. The bark is light grey to silver in color. Sweet Street™ originated from a native seed source in Dodge Co WI, making it very winter hardy.
Due to its narrow habit, it can be used in more constricted spaces than other Tilia cultivars, giving us the confidence that Sweet Street™ will make a useful street tree. Like all Tilia americana, it has sweet smelling flowers that are prized by bee keepers for the Linden honey they make. It appears to have good Japanese Beetle resistance but hasn’t been thoroughly tested for that trait yet.
