In a Nutshell:
* The Wych Elm sometimes reaches heights of 40 m, typically with a broad crown supported by a short bole < 2 m. d.b.h , and is notable for its very tough, supple young shoots. The leaves are deciduous , alternate, simple ovate or obovate with a lop-sided base, 6-17 cm long and 3-12 cm broad, the upper surface is rough. Leaves on vigorous shoots sometimes have three or more lobes near the apex . The hermaphrodite flowers appear before the leaves in early spring, produced in clusters of 10-20, they are 4 mm across on 10 mm long stems and, being wind-pollinated, are apetalous . The fruit is a winged samara 20 mm long and 15 mm broad, with a single round 6 mm seed in the centre, maturing in late spring . more...
