Comments:

Mt William Advanced Tree Nursery only grow budded forms ofUlmus parvifolia. These are far superior to seedling and cutting grown forms. Budded forms tend to develop a dominant leader with less maintenance, form and branch structure are better and are inclined to have less included bark branch unions than the seedling form.The bark of this U. parvifolia exfoliates in irregular patches, revealing beautiful mottled colours of grey, green, orange and brown.

All plant dimensions are estimates only and ultimate size and growth rates will depend on growing conditions, particularly when used in some urban environments. All estimates are based around a 20-year time frame. With maturity most species will grow larger.
