Ulmus parvifolia ‘Seiju’ full sun

This dwarf Chinese Elm presents an array of ornamental attributes: fissured corklike bark, delicate branches uniquely arranged in somewhat flattened sprays, petite dark green foliage—elliptic, toothed and lustrous—and bright new growth. Unsurpassed in a trough, a rock garden or as a bonsai subject, it is a stellar, disease resistant sport of the ultraminiature Ulmus ‘Hokkaido’ with small reddish flowers, slightly larger deciduous leaves and a faster growth rate.

Bred by Carl Young of Lodi, California, ‘Seiju’s no-fuss nature loves sun and ample moisture, while abiding an array of soils.

Blooms August.

Size: 2' 0"–10' 0" high x 2' 0"–10' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Ulmus parvifolia ‘Seiju’ (S-0728)
