the new linden clump - part 1

This is a European linden tree, Tilia platiphyllos. It was collected by Wolfgang Kaeflein in Germany many yeas ago. Such clumps of linden are extremely rare. Acutally besides this one unheard of as far as I know. On Saturday this tree found it's way into my garden.

Here the tree as it was in Wolfgang's garden and later in my own garden.
