The basswood, or American linden, is well adapted for large backyards and open spaces. It has a uniform and rounded shape to its crown. The dark green leaves turn yellow in the fall, often retaining streaks of dark green. The basswood has an abundance of small yellowish-white flowers that are fragrant and attractive to pollinators.
