Resistant to the Dutch elm disease, our towns and countryside have found the elm again.

Description

Tested by INRA, this hybrid is the result of cross fertilization of six French varieties, plus an English and a Chinese one. It is resistant to the Dutch elm disease.
Its bark is smooth. The leaves are quite similar to the common elm tree: asymmetrically toothed, with a rough underside. The deep green foliage is dense. In the autumn it has a beautiful golden yellow tint.
In March, before the leaves, grow discreet flowers in the shape of little red globules without petals.
Its slender trunk gives LUTECE ® a perfect aptitude for a high-stem training, better than Ulmus RESISTA® 'Sapporo Gold'; growing naturally its habit is regular and homogeneous. It also makes a very good shrub. It is fast growing.
Perfectly adapted to landscape hedges, this cultivation is equally interesting planted in groups on an embankment for example, but also as individual tree or grown in line if it has been grown as a full standard.
The name of LUTÈCE ® was given to it in recognition of the help provided by Parks and Gardens Department of the city of Paris for having taken care of a field of experimentation in the Vincennes Park.

Care

Prune to shape, if necessary. Tolerates well cutting to turn it into a shrub (at the end of winter).
