If you are looking for a large and impressive shade tree that resembles the American Elm in stature–look no further! Japanese Zelkova has an appealing vase shaped form with a rounded crown. Green leaves in summer give way to an impressive array of autumn colors ranging from yellow to copper to red. It is highly adapted to our alkaline soils and winds, and prefers frequent irrigation like that found in bluegrass lawns. Another important aspect is it has very few insect or disease issues including Dutch Elm Disease. Native to eastern China, Japan and Korea.
