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.

    Planting information

    Hydrangea (Hydrangea)

    Few groups of shrubs create such a floral impact in the landscape from mid to late summer, as do Hydrangeas. They are reliable, easily grown, and tolerant of sun or light shade and can be grown as individual specimens or massed in formal or informal groups. The large bold flowerheads can also be enjoyed indoors in cut arrangements. Bold attractive foliage frequently enhances the floral display and extends seasonal ornamental interest. Two North American native species, the Oakleaf Hydrangea (H. quercifolia) and the Smooth Hydrangea (H. arborescens) are represented by several outstanding selections with the strikingly shaped foliage of the Oakleaf Hydrangea assuming beautiful fall colorations.

Although deer can be unpredictable, we have compiled this list of plants that they usually ignore.
