Ulmus parviflora 'Hokkaido'

Dwarf Princess Elm.  This petite Princess Elm is a tiny treasure for fairy gardens and miniature landscapes.  Contributes amazing texture and interest in every season.  Drops its leaves in the fall, revealing a complex structure of tiny twigs and branches.  Bark begins to exfoliage (to peel) at a young age.  Spends the summer covered in tiny green leaves.  Has an upright broad habit.  A rare variety, long sought after for bonsai and troughs.  Cold hardy to zone 5.  Plants are about 4.5" tall above a 3.5"h x 4"diameter pot. Plants are dormant, just beginning to leaf out (as shown in photos).  A fabulous little plant!  PLEASE NOTE:  Plants are dormant; just beginning to leaf out.
