This is a rare and choice lime. It is very slow growing and its eventual height is fairly small at around 25'. It flowers in august and september providing welcome food for bees at this time of year with its honey-scented blooms.
However it is the leaves that provide the major interest. They are large and strongly toothed with a pleasing translucency. They colour well in autumn, some specimens having a bright pinky red margin to their leaves at this time. The young shoots and leaves have a velvety texture and are flushed with russet.
