Ulmus parvifolia, commonly known as the Chinese Elm, is a versatile and hardy tree that brings both elegance and resilience to any landscape. With its rounded head, graceful pendulous branches, and slender trunk, this deciduous tree is a visual delight. Adding to its unique charm is its peeling bark, which provides year-round interest. The tree is adorned with small, dark green leaves that transition to vibrant shades of orange and yellow in the autumn, creating a stunning seasonal display.
Native to East Asia, Ulmus parvifolia is highly resistant to Dutch Elm Disease and can tolerate a wide range of conditions, including moderate coastal winds and drought. It thrives in both full sun and partial shade and is well-suited for various soil types, making it an excellent choice for street and avenue planting. With its hardy, rounded form and finely serrated medium-green leaves, this tree is not only aesthetically pleasing but also incredibly functional, especially in dry plains sites or areas exposed to salt winds.
