Ulmus procera 'Aurea'

Elm, Ulmus vimilanis 'Aurea'

Once a popular vase-shaped lawn and street tree, American Elms are plagued by incurable Dutch elm disease and insects. Elms also have shallow, aggressive root systems. However, one species, the Chinese Elm, which resists disease and pest damage, is still planted in mild-winter and desert regions. Its long arching branches are covered with glossy saw-toothed leaves that turn color in fall. Its shedding bark creates a multicolored trunk. Do not plant Elms where Dutch elm disease has broken out. Stake young trees until trunk develops. Prune to shape and remove deadwood.
Ulmus procera, Elm, Ulmus vimilanis 'Aurea'
This is a rare and choice yellow-leaved variant. Like the American Elm it is susceptible to Dutch Elm disease. Closely related to the English Elm.
