An Excellent Drought- and Disease-Resistant Elm

Why Emerald Sunshine® Elm Trees?

This newly cultivated elm is everything you need in an elm tree. The Emerald Sunshine® Elm Tree provides superior performance and tolerance without sacrificing on beauty. Elms were nearly wiped out due to disease, but with new cultivators like the Emerald Sunshine® Elm Tree, they're coming back better than ever. 

The leaves of the Emerald Sunshine® Elm are corrugated and emerge bronze. And as the leaves mature, they deepen into a glossy green that shines in the sun. But the colors don’t stop there! In fall, the leaves turn to lovely yellows and reds to dazzle your landscape with autumnal color.

The Emerald Sunshine® Elm’s sturdy, upright growth habit makes it ideal for planting in multiples and creating shade. You can utilize it to create rows or add visual interest to open areas in your yard. Plus, with its ability to adapt to a wide range of soils, your Emerald Sunshine® Elm will provide a happy shaded spot wherever it's planted.

The Emerald Sunshine® Elm is a majestic tree that grows in a symmetrical growth habit. And although it's smaller than most elms, it delivers in tolerance and low-maintenance. Promising superior performance in hot, arid and windy areas, it's truly one of the most tolerant elms ever cultivated. It’s also resistant to elm leaf beetle, Japanese beetle, and Dutch Elm Disease. 

Add effortless shade and deep autumn color to your landscape with the Emerald Sunshine® Elm. Order now before they sell out!

    Trees were well packaged and big. Planted as winter was coming, so hopefully they come in strong this spring.

    Emerald Elm Tree

    Although the trees I received seemed smaller than advertised, they were very healthy and packaged carefully. The enclosed planting instructions were helpful and I cannot sing enough praise for John, the salesman who helped me pick them out.

    Emerald Sunshine Elm Tree review

    The trees arrived quickly and were carefully boxed. It's October so they only had a few leaves but they have lots of healthy buds for next spring. I live in the high desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico so I will have to wait till nest spring to report how well the trees take to this climate. Time will tell and I hope they live up to the claims that they can tolerate hot, dry and a windy environment.
