Looking for a low maintenance tree that provides good shade and easy fall cleanup? Look no further than Zelkova serrata, a medium-sized deciduous tree characterized by a short trunk dividing into many upright and erect spreading stems forming a broad, round-topped head. This tree is highly resistant to Dutch elm disease and is often planted as a lawn or park tree for its attractive bark, leaf color, and vase shape. The bark is grayish white to grayish brown and either smooth with lenticels or exfoliating in patches to reveal orange inner bark. Zelkova serrata is adaptable and tolerant of heat, little water, nutrient-poor soils, and various pH levels. It is often grown as an ornamental tree, both in its native area and in Europe and North America. Plus, its attractive shape and colors make it a popular choice for bonsai. Consider adding Zelkova serrata to your landscape for a beautiful and easy addition.
