Lacebark Elm – Ulmus parvifolia

Lacebark elm, native to China, Korea and Japan, is a medium deciduous tree noted for its foliage, bark, rapid growth and resistance to Dutch elm disease. It is also tolerant of urban conditions and tolerates both wet and dry soil, but prefers full sun.

The insignificant reddish green flowers appear in August and September. Lacebark elm is considered an invasive species in Wisconsin, Nebraska, New Jersey, Virginia and North Carolina.
