A Hybrid Worth Harboring Patriot Elm

  • Gorgeous Green Foliage Grows Dense
  • Vase-Shaped Crown Great for Street Planting
  • Dutch Elm Disease Resistant
  • Tolerates Poor Soil and Salt Well

There are excellent street trees and then there's Patriot Elm (Ulmus x 'Patriot'). With fantastic foliage, desirable disease resistance, and tolerance of just about any growing conditions you have, this tree is the whole package.

This deciduous tree is tough. It was bred specifically to be pest and disease tolerant while maintaining the utmost eye-appeal.

Each spring, its densely branched crown fills in with glossy mid-green foliage. Use it as a shade tree in your front yard or along the road as a street tree.

Urban air pollution isn't a problem for Patriot in the slightest. They aren't bothered by salt either so those in colder climates won't have to worry when they're salting the roadways.

Waiting for growth is sometimes the hardest part about being a tree parent. We're happy to say this Elm hybrid grows quite fast so you'll have a grand looking tree in no time!

As the days become brisk, you'll be delighted when this tree turns a bright yellow. Perfectly complementing the red maples and evergreens nearby.

Try planting a Patriot in place of other Elm trees as this one is completely Dutch Elm Disease Resistant!."

If you're looking for a tree to become the backdrop of family pictures for years to come, congrats! You can stop the search here! There simply isn't a better specimen.

Don't let another year go by without adding a Patriot Elm to your landscape. Order yours today!
