A Strong, Upright Alternative to the American Elm: The Wireless® Zelkova

  • Tall and Sturdy
  • Attractive Form with Outstretched Branches
  • Fiery Fall Color
  • A Tree Fit for an Estate

A true specimen tree: The Wireless Zelkova (Zelkova serrata 'Schmidtlow') is a giant with a wide crown that reaches toward the sky. With brilliant fall foliage, this tree's charm lasts year after year as it towers taller and taller.

The Wireless Zelkova is a single-stem tree that grows in an upright, vase form with branches that remain celebratory while reaching far and wide. It keeps a tidy shape and can at times offer a large-scale bonsai-like form, especially if yours takes on a flat-topped form as it grows.

Like other Zelkovas, the Wireless Zelkova has a straight trunk that remains narrow and tidy. Its branches remain symmetrical and even.

This tree is fit for a yard where kids can play beneath. As a Zelkova, you can expect this variety to thrive under adverse conditions and remain strong and attractive.

The Wireless Zelkova's leaves are serrated and medium green. Because this tree has such a dense crown, it creates a deep pool of shade beneath. When fall arrives, you will be floored by the Wireless Zelkova's vibrant brilliant yellows that transform to a coral red then deep merlot.

Plant your Wireless Zelkova along the roadway or driveway for a lovely canopy or tunnel-like feel. Plant the Wireless Zelkova wherever you would plant the American Elm. Use it as a specimen, long-term shade tree, or as tree that will stand up against urban conditions. You will want to prune its lower branches until it matures.

If you're looking for a tree that is strong, stately, and a model of health, the Wireless Zelkova is ready to make your acquaintance.
