The ACCOLADE™ Elm is a remarkable disease-resistant replacement for the American Elm, with a very similar vase-shaped form. It grows quickly into an attractive arching tree that will reach 30 feet tall within 20 years, and ultimately reach 60 feet tall, with a crown over 30 feet wide. Grow it as a handsome lawn specimen, or an avenue along a driveway or property line. If you miss the elm tree, this tree will bring it back, without the risk of it dying from the dreaded Dutch elm disease.

  • Disease resistant replacement for the American Elm
  • Vase-shaped form is very similar to the American Elm
  • Good golden yellow fall colors
  • Grows well across a wide range of soils and climates
  • Also resistant to elm yellow and leaf beetles

Grow the ACCOLADE™ Elm in full sun or partial shade, in any well-drained soil. It is completely hardy almost everywhere, from zone 5 to zone 8, and thrives across a wide range of climates. It grows in both acid and alkaline soils, with resistance to salt spray and salt runoff. Beside excellent resistance to Dutch elm disease, it is also resistant to elm yellows and the elm leaf beetle. Some formative pruning during its development is helpful in creating a top-quality specimen.
