A hybrid reported occasionally from the parts of Europe where Tilia cordata and T. tomentosa grow together even though T. tomentosa tends flower later. This name is very rarely seen attached to cultivated trees in Europe or North America, although there is a fine linden labelled T. × juranyana at the John A. Finch Arboretum, Spokane, WA, planted before 1912 (Plants Map 2020). The cultivar ‘Hillieri’ probably belongs here.
T. tomentosa f. virescens, described by Späch in 1834 from a tree growing in the Trianon Garden in Paris as a form with leaves so thinly felted underneath that they appeared green, may have been of hybrid origin (Pigott 2012), though the wild population of T. tomentosa does include trees whose underleaf is much less densely tomentose than the forms familiar in gardens.
