This is the most common cultivar of the American Linden planted in the Eastern and Midwestern US. It grows more narrowly and is more pyramidal than the mother species. It was selected by Plumfield Nurseries in Fremont, Nebraska in 1927. It does not seem to have any suckers come up around the trunk.
