Regal Elm

Availability: Out of stock

The Regal Elm, Ulmus 'Regal', has large dark-green glossy leaves.  It has an upright character, transplants well, and will tolerate a wide range of conditions.

'Regal' Elm develops a strong central leader with an upright or columnar growth habit when young, becoming more ovate with age.  Its leaves are dark green in summer, and show no appreciable fall coloration.  

Because the leaves are rather sparsely borne, they cast a honeylocust-like light shade that makes possible the successful culture of turf grass in the vicinity of the tree.

Considered highly resistant to DED and verticillium wilt, this Elm is also a good urban tree since it is highly resistant to Dutch elm disease.  It has proved very tolerant of hot and arid conditions, exhibiting minimal leaf scorch.

'Regal' has an upright columnar form similar to 'Commelin', making it particularly suitable for street planting.
