Excerpt from The Flowering Plants, Grasses, Sedges, and Ferns of Great Britain, and Their Allies, the Club Mosses, Pepperworts and Horsetails, Vol. 2: Flowering Plants, With 254 Species Coloured

The owers are very profuse, and are so much prized by bees, that these insects keep up a perpetual humming on a summer's day among the branches. In Lithuania, near Kowno, where there are large forests of limes, the honey is remarkable for its excellence, and much valued for medicinal purposes, and as an ingredient in liqueurs, Kowno honey being worth double the price of any other.

The ancestors of our great Swedish botanist owed their name to a linden-tree growing near their dwelling, Linne being the Swedish name of Linnaeus and Hohen linden is one of many places called after this tree. Several linden-trees are famous in local histories, and in poetry, like that under which Martin Luther stood and preached the doctrines of the Reformation; or that huge tree, at Fribourg, which commemorates the victory of the Swiss over Charles the Bold, in 1476. This tree is old, but a lime-tree older yet, and supposed to have been planted a thousand years ago, stands at no great distance from it, and has a trunk thirty-six feet in circumference. One of the finest limes in England is that celebrated one of Moor Park, in Hertfordshire, which is surrounded by many a large and old companion, and is itself nearly hundred feet high. What Bryant said of another group of trees is true of these limes.
