Looking for a stunning tree that will add unique beauty to your garden? Look no further than Zelkova carpinifolia, also known as the Caucasian Zelkova or Elm Zelkova. This medium-sized to large deciduous tree boasts a highly distinctive vase-shape crown and a short broad trunk that divides into numerous nearly erect branches. Its dark green elm-like leaves are 4-10 cm long and 2.5-6 cm broad, with serrated margins and 7-12 teeth on each side. In the fall, the leaves turn a rich shade of red before falling off for the winter. The flaking bark adds an interesting texture to the tree's appearance.

It is a great addition to any garden, adding a beautiful, unique shape and texture that will be sure to make it stand out. So, why wait? Bring home the beauty of the Caucasian Zelkova today!
