Lindens

Delicate yellow-blossomed trees

Trees with heart-shaped leaves and sweet-scented yellow blossom, commonly referred to as 'lime-trees' (but note that 'lime-trees' in this context are unrelated to the fruit trees of the same name). In Legolas' song of Nimrodel, he compares her to a linden-leaf, and there were Ents in Fangorn Forest of linden-kind.
