Ulmus parvifolia ‘Chinese Elm’
Used widely in street plantings, Ulmus parvifolia or ‘Chinese Elm’ is also suited for use in commercial landscaping as well as in home gardens. Is available in a number of sizes from wholesale growers ready for you landscaping project.
The ‘Chinese Elm’ is most widely used as a semi-deciduous shade tree growing to 10 – 20m depending on conditions.
A nice rounded crown and smooth bark make this a great street tree or shade tree in a larger garden.
With a moderate growth rate over time most cultivars will reach around 15m in height with a broad spreading crown to around the same.
Flowers are insignificant, green followed by small fruit. The bark is an attractive feature often with a mosaic or snake skinned pattern grey with orange and brown.
As this is tree that does not cast deep shade they are useful in a range of situation where they can be under-planted with smaller shrubs and will allow a lawn to grow beneath them.
Used widely as street trees as well as in parks and gardens a number of named cultivars are worth considering.
