Ulmus villosa ex Kashmir

From seed originally collected in Kupwara, Kashmir, this beautiful and distinctive elm is now offered for wider planting in cultivation. Very rarely seen, this has a low susceptibility to Dutch Elm disease and a fine specimen grows at Kew for eg. It makes a large tree with semi-pendent branching and a rounded, full crown, with slightly grey-green leaves that emerge with a red tint. The bark is a smooth pale grey with obvious vertical fissures with age. A group of three thrive here in Frampton on Severn, Gloucestershire, in open parkland.

Pot size: 2L
