Fast-Growing, Hardy Shade Tree

The 'New Horizon' Elm is a fast-growing, vigorous Elm tree variety. One would make a wonderful shade tree for your front yard, or plant several along your street or driveway for a homey welcome.

Your 'New Horizon' Elm is a fast-growing, stately tree with decorative elements. The 4-inch, elliptic leaves are double-serrated with a lively deep green color, a darker hue than many other Elms. It also has a finer-textured appearance than most Elms, and is a good, clean-growing tree with a subtle grayish bark.

You may not notice the tiny, green flowers that appear in spring, but you're sure to see the adorable seeds that appear soon after. Each seed is like a tiny bump surrounded by a rounded, wafer-thin membrane, a delicate, dangling ornament amid the vibrant foliage. In the fall, 'New Horizon' will display rusty red tints amid its deep green color.

It has an upright habit, strong branch structure, and a dense crown. It's resistant to Leaf Minor, Verticillium Wilt and Dutch Elm Disease (which is responsible for the deaths of many Elm trees).

It prefers average soils with full sun, but is tolerant of partial shade and urban environments. 'New Horizon' is also drought-resistant.

A fast-growing, disease-resistant tree with lovely features, 'New Horizon' Elm is a terrific choice for your yard today.

  • Fast Growing
  • Dutch Elm, Leaf Minor and Verticillium Wilt Resistant
