Ulmus glabra 'Lutescens'


Description: A medium-sized deciduous tree with a vase shape when young, developing a rounded canopy as it matures. Its ovate, coarsely-toothed leaves emerge a soft cream-yellow in spring turning yellowish-green in summer and golden-yellow in autumn. Reddish-brown flowers in early spring are followed by clustered, winged, green fruit. 

Ulmus Growing Tips: Tolerant to a wide range of conditions but prefers moist, well drained soils in full sun. Good for pollarding.
