This cultivar was introduced to the nursery trade in 1927 by Plumfield Nursery in Fremont, Nebraska. It seems to be a hybrid between the American Linden x the Crimean Linden. It is closer to the American species. It starts out as a densely pyramidal tree. When old it should not be so pyramidal. It is offered by a good number of nurseries in the Midwest and East.

Ours is a lovely young tree. It's blooming now and smells fantastic. Younger growth is red, and it looks great in winter.
