Looking for a tough, attractive tree that will thrive in any soil and pH level? Check out the Ulmus parvifolia 'Elsmo' Chinese Corkbark Elm, also known as the Chinese Elm or Lacebark Elm. This small to medium deciduous tree is highly resistant to Dutch elm disease and unaffected by the Elm Leaf Beetle. Its mottled grey and red bark makes it a striking feature in any landscape, and its dark green and shiny leaves turn yellowish to reddish purple in the fall. The tree is tolerant of harsh planting situations such as parking lots and in plazas or patios. Chinese Elms are frequently used in bonsai, owing to their high tolerance of pruning. The Chinese Elm is hardy enough to grow in harsh planting situations and the durability of its wood makes it popular for furniture, cabins and hardwood flooring. Purchase this hardy and versatile tree today and enjoy it for many years to come!
