(American Elm, Augustine Elm)

The American elm is a large deciduous tree native to eastern North America. Its arching spreading habit, handsome dark green foliage, and tolerance of city conditions made it the quintessential shade tree for the eastern United States before Dutch elm disease decimated it in the mid-1900s. Elm yellows is another disease that attacks American elms, often fatally. Several disease resistant forms of American elm have been introduced including 'Valley Forge', 'New Harmony', 'Princeton', and 'Independence'....

(European Mountain Elm, Scotch Elm)

A stately deciduous shade tree with a domed crown, Scotch elm is native to central and northern Europe, Asia Minor and Siberia. It is highly susceptible to Dutch elm disease and thus rarely cultivated in North America since the 1970s. The toothed, oval, medium to dark green leaves have rough upper and downy lower surfaces. In early spring inconspicuous reddish-green flowers cover the leafless branches, followed by clouds of fuzzy winged fruits. In autumn the leaves turn shades of yellow before falling...

(Camperdown Elm, European Mountain Elm, Scotch Elm)

A dwarf weeping selection of a stately Eurasian tree, 'Camperdownii' forms a domed lampshade-like crown of zigzagging branches. The toothed, oval, medium to dark green leaves have rough upper and downy lower surfaces. In early spring inconspicuous reddish flowers cover the leafless branches, followed by clouds of fuzzy winged green fruits that ripen to tan. In autumn the leaves turn shades of yellow before falling to reveal the contorted branches and grayish-brown bark of this architectural tree....

(Siberian Elm)

Hardy, tough, and fast-growing, this small to medium-sized deciduous tree from northern and central Asia was once a popular choice for difficult sites. It is much less frequently used today because of its undistinguished appearance, weak wood, and weedy nature. Of variable habit, it bears small, oval, dark green leaves on upright to spreading branches. The disease-resistant leaves persist late into fall, dropping while still green. Inconspicuous early spring flowers are quickly followed by masses...

(Slippery Elm)

A common elm found across the whole of eastern North American from Quebec, Canada down to Texas, slippery elm is a tough, adaptable species that's quite hardy. Though still sensitive to Dutch Elm disease, it is more prevalent in the wild than its sister species, the American elm (Ulmus americana). It is a deciduous tree of medium height that develops a broad, somewhat vase-shaped crown with age. Wild populations favor lowland sites and floodplains where soils are moist and rich, but trees...

(Chippewa Blueberry, Hybrid Blueberry)

Combining the more upright habit and larger fruits of northern highbush blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum) with the compactness and exceptional cold-hardiness of lowbush blueberry (V. angustifolium), this "half-high" cultivar bears quantities of large sweet light blue berries in early summer. The firm succulent fruits are preceded by small white urn-shaped flowers. The upright chest-high plants have oval dark green leaves that turn brilliant orange and red in fall.

Combining the more upright habit and larger fruits of northern highbush blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum) with the compactness and exceptional cold-hardiness of lowbush blueberry (V. angustifolium), this "half-high" cultivar bears quantities of medium-sized mildly flavored sky-blue berries in early summer. The firm succulent fruits are preceded by small white urn-shaped flowers. The broad upright knee-high plants have oval dark green leaves that turn brilliant orange and...
