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.

    Lovely trees

    Planted three to create shade. The trees arrived in great condition, a little take than expected. They are doing well in my landscape. Excited to see them next fall!

    Green Vase Zelkova Tree

    I bought six Zelkova trees to put throughout my park strips and they have done good since being planted at the beginning of May 2022. Unfortunately strong winds and sun scorching have initially created some challenges for these trees but Christine (Tree Expert) at Fast Growing Trees gave me some great tips to help these trees recover!
