Fragrant in spring, shady in summer, lindens are a shapely choice for planting in lawns. Most develop a nearly perfect teardrop shape with no pruning. Small, heart-shaped leaves decorate the littleleaf linden. Because of their smog tolerance, lindens make good street trees, but they may attract spring aphids that drip honeydew on cars parked underneath. Plant lindens in moist, well-drained soil.
