The Triumph™ Elm, Ulmus 'Morton Glossy', is a selection that resulted from a controlled cross between Vanguard™ Elm and Accolade® Elm, conducted by Dr. George Ware at the Morton Arboretum.
Introduced through Chicagoland Grows®, it has an upright habit with strong branching, large, lustrous dark green foliage and excellent disease and pest resistance.
Triumph™ develops softly arching branches as it matures. Elms are adaptable to a wide variety of soil conditions and come in graceful, vase-shaped and weeping forms.
Elms prefer full sun and adapt easily to extremes in pH, moisture, wind and heat. The aggressive roots can probably break sidewalks and raise pavement if trees are improperly located.
An excellent shade tree, Triumph™ Elm offers excellent disease and pest resistance to Dutch elm disease, Elm Yellows and Elm Leaf Beetle.
Elms are back! This attractive Triumph™ Elm makes an excellent shade tree for home and commercial landscapes, parks or as a street tree.
