Ulmus parvifolia - Chinese Elm Tree

Ulmus parvifolia - Chinese Elm Tree is a lovely shade and specimen tree with highly ornamental bark.  This tree is very adaptable and suited to a wide range of conditions.  The dense foliage gives a nice shade and the smalll leaves catch the wind providing movement in the garden.

Height: 10 - 15 metres. (Tends not to reach its maximum height in an urban environment.)

Width: 8 - 12 metres.

Growth rate: Moderate.

Form: Ulmus parvifolia - Chinese Elm Tree has variable, wide spreading vase-shaped to broadly rounded habit.

Foliage: Thick, glossy dark green leaves with an evenly and shallowly serrated margin.

Autumn colour: Ulmus parvifolia - Chinese Elm Tree leaves are often yellow to yellowish-green but the tree tends to be semi-evergreen, especially in warmer areas.

Bark: Highly ornamental. On older trees the darker outer bark exfoliates in irregular patches to reveal lighter brownish-orange to green and grey young bark. 

Tolerances: Ulmus parvifolia - Chinese Elm Tree is very adaptable and tolerant of urban conditions such as compaction, wetness, dryness. Good tolerance to air pollution.

Landscape use:  Shade and specimen tree in medium to large gardens.  A good parkland tree.
