Here is a remarkable elm. It’s called 'Wredei' Golden elm, or Ulmus × hollandica 'Wredei', a hybrid with some confusion as to parentage but great beauty an versatility. This stunning elm is grown primarily for its striking foliage. The leaves are coarse-textured and suffused with yellow and ascend the tree in whorls, creating a spectacular upright column of highly textured gold. The color holds up through the season and will become the centerpiece of the garden around which other plants will complement or contrast. It prefers cools summers but full sun and will grow eventually to 15 feet in height. It is highly effective where space is restricted due to its slender profile.

It does have some resistance to Dutch elm disease, but not total immunity so it would not be recommended for areas where the disease is prevalent. This superb specimen is well suited to the UK, New Zealand, the upper US and southern Canada.
