What is the tree of the month?

Tilia oliveri (Oliver's lime)

Oliver's lime

Why is it tree of the month?

The beautiful foliage with a pale underside, along with the large flower bract make this species quite distinctive. Soon to flower, this is most definitely a seasonal highlight.

Where can I find it?

The champion grows on Specimen Avenue, whilst there are other mature trees in Acer Glade and on Holford Ride.
