Weeping Wych Elm
Description:
Weeping deciduous tree, usually grafted onto a 2 metre standard. Has strong branches growing horizontally to pendulous forming a drooping rounded canopy. Grows approximately 1 metre higher than the graft x 5 metres wide. Leaves are mid green, with many pale green flowers followed by clusters of pale green seeds. Any vigorous upward branches should be removed. The final result creates an excellent shade tree for large gardens. Hardy. Resistant to strong winds and adverse conditions. Grows in most soils and conditions, preferring full sun and room to spread.
