Small-leaved linden, or heart-shaped linden, or heart-leaved linden (lat. Tilia cordata).

Deciduous tree 20-38 m tall with a tent-shaped crown. The bark is dark, furrowed on old trees.

The leaves are alternate, heart-shaped, long-petiolate, toothed, with an elongated, pointed apex, green above, bluish below.

The flowers are regular, bisexual, with a double five-part perianth, up to 1-1.5 cm in diameter, yellowish-white, fragrant, collected in pendulous corymbose inflorescences of 3-11 pieces, with inflorescences having an oblong yellowish-green stipule.

The fruit is a spherical, pubescent, thin-walled, one- or two-seeded nut. The fruits ripen in August - September.

It blooms for two weeks in July, but in hot and dry summers flowering can be reduced to 5 days.

One of the main advantages of linden is its nectar-bearing capacity. As a honey plant, it has no equal in the domestic flora; it produces the most valuable, fragrant honey.

Moderately demanding on soil. Prefers fresh, sandy and loamy, fertile soils, from slightly acidic to slightly alkaline. Grows well in poor, not too dry soils.

USDA Hardiness Zone: 3 (-40°C to -34°C).
