Product Description

Upright, Columnar Branching + Rich Elm Color

Why DannaSpire Columnar Elm Trees?

One of the newest introductions in the Elm family, the DannaSpire Columnar Elm Tree lives up to its name, with sleek upright branching and smaller leaves that mean more versatility and effortless growth for you.

It's perfect for hedging, street planting, urban environments, and beyond. Because it's tolerant of most tough conditions, including air pollution, you won't have to worry about stunted growth - you'll have a neat columnar growth habit and rich yellow-orange fall color that lasts well into the season.

And even when its fine foliage drops, you still have eye-catching interest from its curling bark that peels to reveal tones of orange, white and gray.

Plus, you get beauty and brawn since it's resistant to wind, snow, rain, and drought. Unlike other varieties, it doesn't succumb to Dutch elm disease or elm yellows. That means you can plant your DannaSpire, sit back, and watch the guesswork required.

Why is Better

But the best part of your DannaSpire Elm is that, because it’s a proven performer, it’s consistent. This tree has been nurtured by certified ornamental horticulturists, so you can be certain of its fine quality that lasts year after year.

Finally, since it’s been grown and shipped in its existing pot, roots intact, it’s ready to take off once it arrives at your door.

But don't wait...this new introduction is hard to find at big-box stores and other garden centers. Order your own DannaSpire Columnar Elm Tree today, before it sells out!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Before planting, it’s important to choose a location with enough space to accommodate the size of your Elm. Furthermore, your DannaSpire should be planted in a sunny spot (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day) with well-drained soil.

After you’ve selected a suitable location, dig a hole that’s at least two to three times wider than your tree’s root ball. Once you’ve placed your tree, backfill its soil, tamp down to avoid air pockets, and lastly, water to help establish its roots.

Following planting, simply water and monitor – that’s it. No fertilizer or pruning needed.

2. Watering: Water your tree regularly during the growing season (approximately one thorough watering each week is fine).

But if you’re not sure when to water your tree, simply check its surrounding soil, down to around 2 or 3 inches. If the soil in this area is dry, it’s time to water.
