I have admired a tree on my drive home for a number of years now. I would like to obtain one for my garden.
It is deciduous, and quite compact. It does not appear to grow too tall.
I had through it may be a small horse-chestnut, but the leaves appear much later.
I have taken a some photos of the tree and leaves.
If anyone can identify, it would be appreciated.
Its not a horse chestnut or chestnut.
Never seen one less like a sweet chestnut or horse chestnut. Is it a lime?
Doesn't look like a British native - some sort of ornamental? does it flower? What colour are the leaves in autumn?
Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
The tree is on a public grass verge. Possibly someone may have planted as an ornamental tree?
The tree does not flower, From memory the leave do colour in autumn before dropping.
I can see where a lime may be as possibility, but the leaves appear more elongated.
