Additional Information

This American Elm cultivar retains the attractive vase-shaped form that the American Elm is known for and has some resistance to both the elm leaf beetle and Dutch Elm Disease, which is caused by Ophiostoma ulmi. (Dutch Elm Disease has lead to the near extinction of the American Elm in the US). Many other diseases can cause damage to this cultivar, though.
