With the poise and grace of Nothofagus, but with an exquisite umbrella shape, it is an ideal size for smaller backyards. The best elm for hot and dry climates with a growth habit that provides maximum shade. The bark is striking with orange and brown mottling and the delicate, small leaves fall after turning yellow or red in cool climates. Excellent tolerance to drought and resistant to elm leaf beetles.
