This elm, selected at the University of Wisconsin from a cross of Japanese and Siberian elm, resembles Japanese elm in appearance with larger leaves and growth habit. When inoculated with Dutch elm disease, it has shown no observable damage or only tip injury to the branches. When tips have been infected, the tree is able to wall off the area and prevent spread of the disease.  Available in size #10 and #25 containers.  Our inventory is always changing so please call for current availability.
