Natural hybrid between Ulmus pumilla and Ulmus davidiana var japonica, first discovered in the Sapporo Botanical Gardens, RESISTA ® has undergone many tests by INRA and the Service for the Protection of Plants. It has revealed to be resistant to the Dutch Elm Disease, which has ravaged the elms in our towns and countryside.
A very vigorous tree, it can reach 20 m high and 6 m wide in good growing conditions. It is slightly smaller than our traditional elms.
Its light green foliage turns golden yellow in autumn.
The first elm to be resistant to Dutch Elm Disease, it goes well in country style hedges without resembling the Ulmus glabra.
It is hardy and branches well, it can be pruned (end of winter). For a full standard tree, it must be well staked and pruned back regularly in its first years.
