Topher,

In my opinion T. x europea Pallida is a little more upright than straight 
Europea and maybe slightly smaller at full maturity, but I think that your 
comment:

"or will the physical and structural differences between mature and young 
trees distract  all but the fussiest of observers?"

is bang on the mark - certainly in the commercial world, however I appreciate 
that you have to be extra careful when working with an historic landscape so 
don't take my word for it!!

I agree with Mike Turner - it's a cracking tree, stronger and more regular (& 
with fewer root suckers) than straight T x e and a great avenue specimen. 
Perhaps you are unwittingly starting a planned replacement and improvement to 
the existing avenue?

Then of course there is T x e. Pallida type Lappen, first cultivated from the 
German nursery of the same name.

Merry Christmas and a peaceful, prosperous New Year to everyone on UKTC

Dear All,

Anyone have experience of the above lime cultivar?

A cursory look at Bean implies it may not be that different from conventional 
T. x europaea, but I've never seen it myself.

It is being planted in association with a long-standign avenue of T x 
europaea, so it can't look too out of place!  Again, this location stops me 
going for T. euchlora, or indeed, a smasher like T. oliveri.

Is it different enough to look odd, or will the physical and structural 
differnces between mature and young trees distract  all but the fussiest of 
observers?

Thanks, as ever.
