Little Leaf Linden ( Basswood ) is a fine shade tree that produces fragrant, tiny, yellow blossoms, followed by small,firm, pea-like fruit that is neither useful nor a problem.Leaves ae roundish and heart shaped. Linden is valued by some beekeepers as a source of excellent honey. Don't let the bees disuade you; their only interest is in the nectar.

I am looking out my office window at three beautiful Linden trees. They are tall, straight with a nice shape. And in the early summer, when few other trees provide scent, they are heavenly. I have since planted one in my new yard because I've enjoyed them so much. And yes the bees are a joy to watch as they busily harvest the pollen. I would definitely recommend a Linden.
