Ulmus

Elm Tree. Highly ornamental trees. Elms can be tall and stately, upright and slender or small and weeping. Very worthy garden trees with many selections now resistant to Dutch Elm Disease.

There are several recently introduced hybrids that have been specially bred to survive Dutch Elm Disease. The complex parentage or these hybrids (with species such as U. parviflora, U. japonica and U. americana being involved) provides this strong natural resistance. One of the most promising of these hybrids is Ulmus LUTECE produced by a French/Dutch collaborative selection programme being essentially of European parentage. Ulmus x Wingham is also showing signs of being an excellent new robust variety.

Since the devastating decline of the English Elm (Ulmus pocera), careful observations and selection of the few surviving specimens have taken place. These have been propagated by the modern method of ’tissue culture’. Perhaps this will see the beginning of the rise of the true native in years to come. ‘Epitaph of the Elm’ by Gerald Wilkinson is a moving and fascinating story of the decline of these great trees.
