A Hardy Alternative to the American Elm
Why 'Green Vase'® Zelkova Trees?
The Green Vase® Zelkova has everything you could ever want in a shade tree, from its ornamental interest in every season and pest and disease resistance to hardy, tolerant growth.
Covered in oblong, dark green leaves in the spring and summer, the vase-shaped tree brings spectacular color and visual interest for months at a time. The Zelcova's autumn show will impress 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 peeling gray bark reveals a deep orange color beneath…making the dormant season ornamental, too. Even better is the fact that it's drought-tolerant with no serious disease or pest issues, able to grow in climates with hot, dry summers, and tolerant of pollution and urban conditions.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: The Green Vase® Zelkova is easy to plant in your yard. Because of its tolerance to most soil conditions, you can plant this tree anywhere you like as long as it’s in full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). Also, 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.
2. 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 of years, you only need to water the tree during very dry spells.
If you're not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it's time to water your tree.
3. 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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

- Fast Growing Trees
We were very excited when our trees (2) arrived! I'm hoping they will grow quickly, for shade and beauty. We had a storm come through and destroyed our two trees that we had in our front yard. Our front yard was left bare. I didn't know what kind of tree to replace with. Our neighbor had a tree that I had admired so I asked him if he would tell me about it. It was a 'Green Vase' Zelkova! With all the information in hand I ordered two trees from Fast Growing Trees! I plan on ordering bushes and plants from Fast Growing Trees soon.
This was a replacement for one of the five I already had. Your company was the only one that had this tree. I was very pleased with the professional way it was shipped and more so with the quality of the tree. I will only purchase from you in the future.
I've bought many trees from this site and I've been so pleased, but this one is one of my most favorites. In one year it grew about four feet. The leaves scaffolding effect give it a soft appearance. Our house was built on an old tobacco farm so there are now trees and the few that were planted are much slower growing. So I'm so pleased we will have shade in no time with this tree.
The tree arrived a little beat up, but overall it seems to be doing fine, the leaves are looking more life like and green.
I purchased a dormant 5 - 6 ft Zelkova in November 2018 and planted it immediately. Over the last 2.5 years it his flourished and I couldn't be happier. It grows quickly, it looks great, it isn't messy, it handles Texas summers, and it handled the February 2020 Great Texas Freeze like a champ. The two included pictures were taken on 12/16/2018 and 4/5/2021. I realize the first picture isn't that clear, but I hope it gives an idea of the scale of growth over the last 28 months.
