Hardy, Ornamental Elm
Lacebark Elm is a deciduous landscape shade tree with decorative features. It would be perfect in a location where you’d like a lovely tree, but where the conditions are less than hospitable. In fact, one of Lacebark Elms distinguishing features is its ability to thrive in harsh growing conditions, including parking lots and planters, and in urban settings.
Your Lacebark Elm will grow to 50 feet tall with an equal spread. Its long, arching branches and rounded form are sure to present an elegant silhouette in your yard, and an outstanding place to seek some shade from the summer heat.
The summer foliage fills out the tree very well with glossy, serrated leaves of a deep green shade. Those same leaves transform to yellow and purple hues for the fall for a little added decoration to your autumn landscape.
Perhaps most interesting however, is your tree’s decorative bark. The exfoliating, grey bark peels back to reveal various shades of grey, green, tan and red for a truly enchanting, mottled appearance.
The Lacebark Elm is resistant to Dutch Elm disease and Elm Leaf Beetle, giving it an edge over other varieties. Of course it’s also valued for its general hardiness and ability to grow in a variety of conditions.
If you’re looking for a shade tree that can withstand harsh conditions, is fast-growing and has ornamental features, then look no further. Lacebark Elm is the perfect choice for you.
