Ulmus parvifolia ‘Chinese Elm’ 12″ Pot (Eco Grade)

$19.99

Ulmus parvifolia

The bark of the Chinese Elm is a real stand out feature, as the tree sheds it in patches, creating the effect of a tapestry of varying browns and greys. Foliage is lush, shiny, and green, and the tree is semi-deciduous, turning golden in autumn, and keeping its leaves in warmer areas. It has also been noted by many Aussie gardeners in recent years that native birds enjoy the fruit of the Chinese Elm.

This product is Eco Grade or Imperfect stock. This means it may look a little scrappy, but with some tender loving care it can be returned to its former glory. Not recommended for a novice gardener. Economy items cannot be returned or exchanged.
