Ulmus minor 'Jacqueline Hillier'

Jacqueline Hillier Dwarf Elm.  One of the coolest little trees for fairy gardens.  Miniature elm leaves, about the size of a fingertip, are rich green with deep pleated veins .  Has 4-season appeal:  Plants leaf out in spring, display green foliage in summer, turn yellow/orange in fall, and reveal its silvery bark and structure for the winter.   In the ground, with time and without pruning, plants will reach 6 feet + in height.  Popular bonsai and container plant.  Some have straight trunks, others have a character-adding curve. Most are single stem/trunk, but some may have 2 or more. Prune in late summer or fall to maintain the "tree-like" look and desired size.  Cold hardy (planted in the ground) to zone 5.  Plants are about 5-7" tall above a 3.5"h x 4"diameter pot.   PLEASE NOTE:  PLANTS ARE DORMANT - Just beginning to leaf out.

  • Very adaptable, but prefers moist, well-drained soil
  • Don't overwater in winter or allow to dry out in summer
  • Grow in full sun or partial shade
  • Cold hardy to about -20 to -10 F
  • Recommended for outdoor gardens; can be grown as bonsai
