Beautiful, Fast Growing Tree Tolerates Most Soils

Elms are magnificent, and the latest improvements have made a good thing even better. Perfect oval canopy, uniformly spaced branches that display a charming droop, and a strong central leader - the Bosque® Elm (Ulmus parvifolia 'UPMTF') is a basically a supermodel dressed in pretty bark and leaves.

This is truly a four season shade tree. Loved for use as a street tree, not too wide, it can handle just about any soil setting in full sun. It can also thrive in sweltering heat but be prepared to give it moisture as needed for best performance and growth rate.

Outstanding branch structure shows off in winter and early spring, and you'll also love studying the interesting bark. It "exfoliates" or peels to showcase multiple layers and a mottled assortment of colors - just gorgeous. It will really draw your eye on those dreary days when not much else is going on in the landscape.

Finely textured green leaves provide delightful shade, so be sure to site a comfortable seating area nearby. This might be the perfect place to site a play structure for the kids, or to string up a hammock to stretch out and laze away a summer afternoon and evening.

In fall, you'll have a color display as the leaves turn a warm honey golden red. This rich color is truly a perfect foil for that interesting, textured bark. You'll have a hard time deciding in which season you like this lovely tree the best.
