Basswood, Florida

Basswoods are medium to large deciduous trees with heart shaped leaves, yellowish fragrant flowers, and small nutlets on stalks attached to a papery wing.  There are many species in the Northern Hemisphere but the taxonomy of the Basswoods that are widespread in eastern North America is very confused and variously interpreted as one variable species or as many species.  Our plants are of south Alabama provenance and may be considered Tilia caroliniana or T. americana var. caroliniana.   Basswood is a good shade or ornamental tree for moist but well-drained fertile soil.  Bees make a prized honey from basswood flowers.
