Ulmus parvifolia 'Seiju'
The Japanese name 'Seiju' translates to "master" in English. This showy dwarf Chinese Elm has mastered textural structure with especially corky bark as it ages. The small leaves don't obscure this corkiness and have a brief Autumnal dalliance with yellow. A go-to specimen for Bonsai and provides a larger element in the rock garden.
