This variety of elm shows resistance to Dutch Elm disease and elm leaf beetle. This fast growing tree tops out at 50 ft. tall and spreads equally as wide. It is tolerant of poor soil, drought, heat, cold and wind. Plant in full sun, dry, well-drained soil and deep water once every 10-14 days. Overwatered elms produce lots of dense, brittle wood that breaks easily in high winds or heavy snow. Not a lawn tree or a tree to garden under, as it has many shallow surface roots. Can be temperature sensitive.
