The Frontier Elm is a hybrid elm that grows into a smaller tree 25 to 40 feet tall, with a rounded crown. Its attractive glossy leaves turn burgundy-purple in fall, a rare coloring for an elm, and the leaves hold well on the tree after they have colored. This tree was created to resist Dutch elm disease and it is a good substitute for missing American elms, especially in urban conditions, where it thrives. It makes an attractive specimen tree, screen or avenue, and it doesn’t produce any messy seeds or unwanted seedlings sprouting in beds and paved areas.

  • Unique hybrid tree of medium size for smaller spaces
  • Fabulous long-lasting fall colors of burgundy-purple
  • High resistance to Dutch elm disease
  • Reliable in harsh urban conditions
  • Grows well in many climates and types of soil

Full sun will give the best fall coloring, but this tree will grow in partial shade too, reaching the sun as it grows taller. It grows in all soils that are not permanently flooded, and it tolerates dryness well. It has very good resistance to Dutch elm disease and elm yellows, and only experiences light damage from elm leaf beetles. Normal formative pruning for shade trees will develop a sturdy tree that is resistant to storm damage.
