Scotch Elm

Arbor walk #84, Treekeeper ID #3382

This weeping cultivar of the Scotch Elm is a large deciduous tree with a rounded crown which grows to be 70-100 feet tall. It is native to areas from Great Britain to Siberia. Its insignificant flowers give way to single-seed samaras which house each seed in a papery wing; however, the cultivar will not grow from seeds.
