AMERICAN SENTRY LINDEN
This cultivar of the American Linden has a very uniform branching habit and upright, pyramidal form. Clusters of small, fragrant white flowers bloom in late spring to early summer, and are attractive to bees. Deep green leaves turn an attractive golden-yellow in the fall, and the bark is silvery-gray when young. American Sentry has great resistance to Japanese beetles compared to other linden species. This is a good choice where space is limited, but shade is needed.
