Mophead Limes, Semi-Mature Trees, Littlebrook Nurseries, Northmoor, Witney, Oxfordshire

If you are looking for an alternative to imported olive trees why not consider our home grown 'mophead' limes? These trees add maturity and structural interest to a planting scheme. The cultivar we use is Tilia platyphyllos Rubra. The red twigs of this lime tree stand out on crisp winter days, and in the summer the luxuriant foliage is a striking feature. These trees take many years to produce so, consequently, we have a limited number available.

Tilia platyphyllos Rubra, container grown, trained as a mophead, approx 3 metres tall with a trunk girth of 40-45cm.

Our box balls (Buxus sempervirens) compliment the round heads of the limes, while the small leaf of the box is a contrast to the large leaf of the lime.
