Interesting cascading form on a small tree. Weeping Chinese Elm has small to medium sized, glossy green leaves that remain on the branches very late into the year. Abundant round, papery seed capsules add additional interest and are not fertile. Stake to develop height. Good resistance to Dutch elm disease. The scion tree has been growing and thriving in Wisconsin in a zone 5 area for 30 years and is about 16' tall and 10' wide. This tree should not be confused with the much inferior Siberian elm, Ulmus pumila, which is often referred to as Chinese elm. Semi-evergreen depending on zone. Bark is mottled and develops textured bumpy areas.
