Grown from seed collected in China, this sturdy, upright-growing elm was selected for superior performance on the hot, arid, windswept plains of western Oklahoma. Handsome, deeply corrugated leaves emerge coppery-bronze and mature to glossy green. Insect resistant and tolerant of heat and drought, it is a fast-growing, tough and adaptable shade tree.
