Ulmus 'Columella'

 

Elm 'Columella'

Elms are deciduous or semi-deciduous trees. 'Columella' was bred because it is resistant to Dutch elm disease. It has a slender, fairly open, columnar crown, and leaves that emerge quite late, and are dark green, oval - narrower at the base, - 6 - 10 cm and scalloped.The foliage turns yellow in Autumn. The bark is silvery-grey and smooth, becoming dark grey with black grooves. Long-stalked bundles of light green flowers appear in early Spring, and are followed by flat winged brown nutlets that are round to elliptical. This tree is used mainly for lining roads and avenues, and in public spaces, such as parks
