There is a long row of these lime trees along the Emmakade. The lime tree on the corner of Julianaplein has a special name. It's a Juliana Linde.

Planting a lime tree is an old custom at the birth or coronation of a crown princess of the royal house (It is not clear whether it was planted at Queen Juliana's birth in 1909 or at her coronation in 1948. It is possible that the tree was planted at birth but was cleared during the war). Placed between the other trees and on the edge of the street, the location does not adequately honor this special tree.

The Dutch Lime is a very old cross between the Small-leaved Lime and the Summer Lime. Because both the Small-leaved Lime and the Summer Lime occur in the wild in the Netherlands, this tree can occur spontaneously in forests. However, this crossing originated at a nursery. The Lime is part of the Lime family.

The Lime is part of the Lime family.

This tree is often planted on farms, because it provides a lot of shade and it can grow in most soils and places. Usually the tree has a variable crown with some heavy main branches and irregularly spreading side branches. In old age, the trunk is quite grooved and clad with thicker tubercles, often on which young twigs grow.

There are now a number of selections of this hybrid that have a better crown. As a result, the tree is already planted less. That's a good thing, because this Lime is quite sensitive to aphids. As a result, use in the city is limited to parks and larger green areas.
