A Graceful, Yet Hardy Alternative to The American Elm
The Green Vase Zelkova has everything you could ever want in a shade tree!
Ornamental interest in every season
Disease and Pest Free
Hardy and Tolerant
It’s not often you come across a shade tree that not only provides ample shade, but looks stunning while it does…
Covered in oblong, dark green leaves in the spring and summer, the vase-shaped tree brings spectacular color and visual interest.
The autumn show will impress you with a variety of colors from rusted orange, to bronze, and even pale yellow.
This Japanese native’s branches grow in a striking scaffolding pattern, and the exfoliating gray bark reveals a deep orange color beneath… making the dormant season ornamental too
Drought-tolerant and with no diseases or pests, there’s no maintenance to worry about!
Able to grow in climates with hot, dry summers, and even tolerant of pollution and urban conditions, you can grow this tree anywhere.
Adaptable to most soil types, this tree is perfect for yards with pesky soil.
Plant your Green Vase Zelkova in a sunny spot in your yard and then enjoy summer afternoons resting under its ample shade.
Comparable to the American Elm, but with more ornamental value and disease resistance, you’ll love the form and function this tree brings to your landscape.
Order yours today and create a solitary showpiece, or order several and plant a jaw-dropping line of shade trees for your driveway or large landscape.

Planting & Care
The Green Vase Zelkova is easy to plant in your yard. Because of its tolerance to soil conditions, you can plant this tree anywhere you like as long as it’s in full sun. Adding mulch to the base of your tree will help keep the moisture in and prevent weeds and grass competition. You don't need to add anything to your soil when planting. Simply plant in a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root ball.
Watering: This tree can tolerate wet or dry conditions. Be sure to water the tree weekly in its young life to ensure proper growth. After a couple years, you only need to water the tree during very dry spells.
Pruning: You don't need to prune the Green Vase Zelkova, but it can be helpful to remove dead bark and branches in the fall.
