A hybrid, intermediate in features between its parents T. americana and T. cordata.

Habitat A hybrid found only in cultivation.

USDA Hardiness Zone 3-7

RHS Hardiness Rating H7

Hybrids between Tilia americana and T. cordata are liable to occur whenever both species are grown together in areas with warm summers, just as with T. americana × platyphyllos (T. × flaccida). T. × flavescens was described in 1843 from a putative hybrid in the park at Karlsruhe, Germany (Pigott 2012): the cross has clearly occurred on both sides of the Atlantic.
