A natural hybrid of Tilia japonica and T. maximowicziana, reported for example from a limestone cliff at Akka, Japan, by Shimizu in 1962 (Pigott 2012). It is scarcely known in cultivation. The Hanwell Hybrid ‘Nigel Muir’, which may soon gain a wider distribution, is an open-pollinated seedling from a cultivated tree, and is presumed to belong here.
