The linden tree is one of those green plants that grandma once cherished. Thanks to its easy maintenance, it is back in fashion today.
The evergreen shrub from South Africa owes its name to its lime green leaves. They have velvety soft hairs and resemble the leaves of our native linden tree.
In the home, this houseplant can grow up to three meters high and, with good care, bears white-red flowers from the end of winter to the beginning of spring.
If the room linden tree likes it, it can quickly grow into a stately tree or bush.
