Linden trees!



From the Arborday blog (https://arbordayblog.org/treeoftheweek/littleleaf-linden-tree-love/):

Native to Europe where it once dominated the woodlands of England, the Littleleaf Linden is full of rich history. The tree was said to be special to Freya—the Germanic and Norse goddess of love and fertility— and Frigga— the goddess of love and marriage. Women hoping to carry would hug the tree wishing to become pregnant. The romance associated with the tree is still visible today, with its heart-shaped leaves and fragrant flowers.

Anne, I love your morning glory!  Did someone mentioned catalpa?  Here's a picture of mine in bloom, but the leaves are a bit short of heart-shaped.  This other flowering lovely does have heart-y leaves tho.  Does anyone know the name of it?

I realise it's a bit late but salvia hot lips

Hot Lips' is a bushy plant, about 100 x 100cm, evergreen if not cut back by frost, with small, ovate, aromatic green leaves. Flowers are borne in loose terminal racemes, red in midsummer, bicolored red and white in July and August, sometimes completely white when the days shorten. Very floriferous in all its colour stages, continuing to the first frost

I really like the eastern redbud. It's such a beautiful tree to me with beautiful pink blossoms in early spring and heart shapes leaves.

It can be found growing wild in my area and has grown well in a mostly shaded area where it is planted. It has thin light brown seed pods that can be a little unsightly, but I personally think they are neat! They self seed themselves pretty well also, so you can get more of them pretty easily if needed!
