Hardiness level Green
'Streetwise' is a reasonably fast growing, selected form of Tilia cordata that is particularly suited to urban situations. It has ascending branches and a neat, slender habit with dark green summer leaves that turn a buttery yellow in the autumn. Height 15 x 10 metres.
Happy on most soils and any aspect but does need shelter from strong cold winds. Once established it can tolerate periods of heat and drought. The thicker foliage also discourages aphid attack.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
