 Origins – Central China, Korea and Japan.

The Chinese elm is an evergreen to
semi-evergreen tree. It has a moderate
growth rate, with a Fully mature height of approximately
16 m and a width of 15 m.
It forms a broad and irregular crown
that has graceful, often low-sweeping
and twisted branches. The canopy
is low density and very open.
The flowers are not the most distinctive
feature of this tree. They appear in autumn,
are green in colour and hang in clusters.
The fruit that follow are papery winged fruit.
They are green to maroon and occur in
clusters among the leaves during autumn.
Growing in a fishbone pattern,
the leaves are medium to dark
green and autumn colour can
develop in cooler areas, although
this is not common in Melbourne.
Although the bark of the Chinese elm
is highly variable, it can be extremely
attractive. It can have a snake-skin like
appearance, mottled in grey, orange
and cinnamon-brown patches.
Alternatively, other trees have
dark brown, rough and scaly bark.

Prices include secure individual mail-order packaging, parcel tracking and GST.
